"They could have waited until the prophet passes by and then drink!"
16 October 2014 | by wujekromanSee all my reviews

Seen at the Warsaw IFF 2014.

Selman is an imam, conducting prayers in a small mosque in the city. He lives a rather peaceful life, playing chess via text messages and practicing baglama (a Turkish stringed instrument). Until one day two shots are fired inside the mosque and one of the praying men collapses to the floor. All hell breaks loose and - to make things worse - his dear daughter introduces her husband-to-be...

The film is not flawless. Perhaps there's a bit too much a bit silly music in it (NOT the songs - those are brilliant), maybe the climax scene is a little too long. But believe me, those are minor flaws; what you remember when leaving the cinema is a delightful mixture of a classic whodunnit, a funny (sometimes very funny) comedy and a modern look on Muslim religion illustrated by very well thought over photography (the Turks have been getting us used to it lately) and flawlessly performed (see the last comment). It's a thrill ride also, the plot thickens, new threads develop and - yes, you guessed it - nearly everybody around could benefit or at least wish the victim death.

Go see it and have fun.
