Director appreciates his confusion by himself only
7 February 2014 | by m_ra_zraSee all my reviews

This film was my first one during the Berlinale 2014. 30 minutes before the screening I entered Cinemaxx 7. I sat on jury's right. I was annoyed by a few young ladies, row behind me, who could not control their emotions. I focused on the title of the film to distract myself from them. I tried to guess from what angle the movie would meets its title. I could not imagine literally and was thinking of 'being calm' or 'without any counter attack'.

It is easier for me to tell what I disliked more than I liked. Locations were chosen perfectly and shots were aesthetic. Young actress was lovely like her hilarious readings. Narratively the viewers has been tried to confuse but although the idea was great, it did not worked out or maybe worse, it was ineffective. One of the jury members had to show his dissatisfaction by leaning forwardly.

I would describe 'Kuzu' emotionally as 'The Stoning of Soraya' in which the leading actress 'accepts' her faith but now suddenly in the final scene she has an successful escape plan which we as viewers have never been fed about.

For the greater part the focus was on the antagonist while the protagonist was calm and in the end we as viewers put on the wrong track of her counter attack.

The young ladies behind me were disappointed because no one from the production crew were there for the q&a part after the screening.

P.S. If you do not like Tamora in Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus then you will not like this movie.
