A documentary tragicomedy of a father-daughter relationship, told by the subjective perspective of the young director. She tries to understand how a revolutionary could have become a criminal and an alcoholic, and why he abandoned his family. Freely juggling between documentary, fiction and animation, the director takes us on a journey around the world. The daughter of a former communists visits the ports of the revolt, where communities are trying to realize the concrete utopia.Written by
I really liked the use of animation and humor to treat heavy topics, respectfully, and lightly - classy, funny, smart and humane. It really helped you open up to the story, and suddenly you realize - wow, that was deep, or heavy, or insightful...Really thoughtful writing and editing.
The review of really recent Turkish history made me realize how much I didn't learn at school.
Plus, a subtle and fun tour of utopias... Worth watching if you have to read Plato, Merton, or Friedman - Utopists who just don't realize their heaven on earth is hellish.
I just hope this filmmaker keeps going - I'm curious to see how she treats other subjects, people, etc.
