Storyline

Thou Gild'st the Evenis about the ordinary sorrows, worries, and troubles of the townsmen with extraordinary abilities. In a small Anatolian town, life goes on; Cemal is an assistant referee in football matches, Yasemin works in an egg factory, Defne is a street vendor who sells books, Doctor Irfan is occupied with his patients. In this town with two suns and three full moons in the sky, Cemal -who can see through walls- has no expectation out of life and looks for a way out with Yasemin -who can move objects remotely with her fingers- as he was trying to deal with his distress. However, Defne, who can freeze time will muddle things up; Yasemin's immortal boss's actions will contradict the invisible elementary school teacher's ad-vices who is trying to ease the worries of Cemal.

Extraordinary Brilliant Movie
2 August 2013 | by yemo-134-860159See all my reviews

First of all I want to explain why Onur Unlu didn't screen this excellent movie in theater.

In our country the sector of cinema is organized by a particular group which have an exclusive possession in this sector. I can't remember the percentage accurately but he said that %30 (or 40) of the movie theaters belong to this group. Besides these theaters have a significant role in box office as they are all fully booked. ( Turkish members could know these theaters easily i.e. FORUM CINEMAS ).

I mean these cinemas determine the box office indeed and others not much important. That's way the terribly awful movies have great amount of box office. (just like Ozcan Deniz's Evim Sensin). And this group doesn't want to accept Onur Unlu's films to screen their movie theaters.

So Onur Unlu was aware of ( and I think he is still) the condition that he couldn't have had the opportunity to do good things without help of this group. And then he decided to not to screen his last film in theaters. In my opinion it is something humiliating to be at the same theater with terrible films one of which written above. Hence I've found Unlu's decision so correct.

There are lots of thing to talk about the movie. But it doesn't deserve any spoiler. I think there is not only one main idea in this movie.

You must really watch it.

Thanks and best regards to the director Onur Unlu and all who contributed to this.
