Good work, this film has an international aspect
13 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

The beauty of the film cannot be understood from the trailers, you should watch it.

(Some people say that Cem Yılmaz(CY) asks vote from his fans, I don't believe in that, every film has its own audience. Besides, no one knows who votes from here so CY cannot know if any of his fans vote or not. Actually, I am not a fan of any famous person. If others like a movie but you don't, you can't blame that the ratings here are not real. You don't have to like every movie and cannot judge others' choices.)

I saw the movie last night at the premiere, it was funny even from the start. This film has a more international aspect compared to past films of CY because it is located in Sofia, Bulgaria & has foreign actor/actresses, foreign people (producers, assistant directors, etc) who have worked in the making of the film.

"Ali Baba & the 7 Dwarfs", has references to many Hollywood movies, including Hunger Games, Predator, James Bond. In some scenes, you can hear good Turkish local music (especially Barış Manço's songs) sang by the actors, themselves. İzzet Altınmeşe's son is also in the film starring as his father's youth. There is also reference to a previous film of CY, "Av Mevsimi" with a song, "Hayde Gidelum".

In all his movies, CY is successful reflecting his local values on the screen & interacting them with the foreign ones in a critical way.

It was very well thought to use a character, Boris Mancov who knows many languages including English, German, French, Italien, Arabian, etc.

There are many parts in the film that makes you really amused & these amusements keep your attention, your mood high till the end of the film while making you really laugh a lot at many times. (Ex: "How Şenay help you?")

Just before the scene when Şenay(Cem Yılmaz), İlber (Çetin Altay) & Veronika (Irina Ivkina) come across Kenan Memedov(Zafer Algöz), Kenan Memedov looks around the forest from underground with a periscope. In this scene, Kenan Memedov character reminds the wizard in the forest, Radagast the Brown in the Lord of the Rings Series. Zafer Algöz's Azerbaijan accent is perfect & his manners, the way he tells who he really is, is funny.

With this film, CY has answered again that he doesn't use same actors or actresses in all his films. Çetin Altay, Josi Mizrahi, Irina Ivkina, Can Yılmaz(brother of Cem Yılmaz), and many other new faces are in "Ali Baba & the 7 Dwarfs". In one scene we see Ozan Güven (the actor recently from the film, "Pek Yakında") in a picture that Kenan Memedov shows us. Although this is Irina Ivkina's first acting experience, she is natural & successful. She adds a good image among other characters with her different Turkish accent (but fluent) & with her native Russian. Fahradin Fahradinov & Mariya Anastasyeva who played the roles of Interpol agents were also very well fit in the film.

In summary, I advise you to watch this movie which is in theaters today, if you want to have fun, forget about the stresses of life & if you want to watch characters who have nice wit (=are ​ skilled at using words in a ​clever and ​humorous way).

I wish CY, the director, actor & scenarist of "Ali Baba & the 7 Dwarfs" will make another film again soon. Turkish movie needs such brave & intelligent people who can make local values spread internationally & who can introduce Turkish actors, actresses to the world.
