Anxious, suspenseful and enigmatic
16 September 2015 | by matthewchristopherSee all my reviews

Saw this film at TIFF a few nights ago and it certainly made an impression on me. The lines between nightmare and reality blurred over the course of the protagonist's descent into paranoia. Set in a war torn ghetto of a militarized Istanbul the film builds suspense from the mystery resulting in leaving several key questions about the characters and their past unanswered. This makes the ambiguity of the characters' increasing agitation and delusion. My friend who accompanied me to the theatre was quite negative following the screening, questioning "What am I supposed to take away from this that I can use?". I honestly didn't have an answer for him, but if you're looking for a tight psychological drama I would certainly recommend this film.
