Great plot and excellent execution. Intense and involving story comes to life with Ozan Aciktan's perfectionist directing. Film starts in a slow pace climaxing after a steady and gradual climb. Aytac Usun, one of the supporting actors was amazing in his first full feature acting job. Although film noir is not a common genre in Turkish cinema Silsile will make my top 20 Turkish films list. Tardu Flordun also shines in his role getting a few big laughs with his carefully measured acting. Watching Silsile was like a fresh breath of air in Turkey's not so diverse cinema today. Director of photography Ahmet Sesigurgil did a great job capturing the story's intense and dark atmosphere.
