Rising racism and sinking hopes: the sun is hovering
21 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

The criticism in the detailed Turkish language about the film is linked below.

The film is a movie that is filmed with the conflicts over male and female couples after the war that caused the division and the division that caused the former yugoslav peoples to experience imperial dreams with factors such as nationalism and chauvenism (extreme nationalism). The main theme is racism, the second story, "Nobody asks me what I think", the loss of human values; Who has lost empathy and has become selfish over time, who does not think of other people's troubles apart from his own cause and does not endeavor to identify with the people around him. The uniformist is presented to the eyes of the spectator as the embodied state of the shallow viewpoint on the individual.

The second detail that we should pay attention to in the film is the discovery of 10 years' worth of time between 3 different stories. But also reflects the fact that they brought a transition from a communist regime to a capitalist regime. (Hedonism), luminizing, which he tried to show through young people in the third story, The director who works with the spoils and disgusts of his attitude which superficializes, disappears in searches, lives on the spot, is aimless and has responsibility against age, and is responsible for the aging, is using the young people who organize night parties while showing this fact.

Although it is read like a kind of purification ceremony to enter the sea, the film tells that the unbreakable wounds brought back from the sea in the film will be played by the young brains one after another, and this film contains the theme of insolubility by specifying with this metaphor. I can say that the theme of alienation in the second story can be read as the difference between the generations, especially the mother and the girl, and indirectly the relationship between man and woman. While racism is rising, the hope sun is slowly rising in the film.
