Movie with a soul
11 August 2017 | by zehra_azeSee all my reviews

I found this movie quite an original one, although I guess there are similar movies in the Hollywood scene that I have not watched. The most beautiful part of the movie was of course the music - Kenan Dogulu has done an amazing job of creating 70s/80s style music from scratch. And Farah made an amazing work performing them. The scenes are colorful, cinematography is rich, dialogues warm and kind. I liked how the story unfolded slowly and sweetly, opening new layers to the drama. The relationship between the family members was very realistic, very Turkish. Yet there was a lot of modern universal sentiment to it. The actors are superb! Both the old ones and the young ones.

Looking forward to more of Cagan Irmak's original movies like this.
