Fake it until you don't make it
27 February 2017 | by andreea_ungSee all my reviews

I've seen this movie in December, in an empty freezing cinema. I didn't know anything about it, except that it was Turkish and won a Cannes prize.

The beginning blew me off. I thought I was watching a documentary orchestrated by a genius DOP, because all of the objects and spaces were so well distributed and it all seemed so rough and real, that it couldn't just be an artistic drama.

Then the slow-to-medium paced action began. It took me a while to realize why the couple was faking its situation in pictures.

The characters are very real; they are creative anti-heroes that represent the lower middle class in all Eastern Europe, not just Turkey. You feel like blaming them all the time while realizing that all they want is a happy, undisturbed family life.

I do recommend it.
