Trivia

The film was shot simultaneously in English and Turkish simultaneously with the same actors. Every shot was completed with retakes in one language and then the actors switched to the second language. The same shot was repeated until right. This process proved to be very difficult during shoot. The post production for both versions were done separately, resulting in two films. English version with the name "Name: Human" and the Turkish version as "Adi: Insan". See more »

its a turkish...
5 January 2021 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

Take on ''two men and a baby'', without any resemblance at all. its a film that i know have been made in a turkish language version and the englich version that i saw. im not too impressed neither the acting ,story or direction are convincing, and as a filmproduct it fails at a western standard.

but the idea of making a film about trans a gay community members, finding and nursing a baby found in a garbage container maybe pretty controversial in the incresangly muslimized country as turkey. its like her do ganadoplanstic to become a straight person again(read the code?), and i hope the productioncompany nor the actors would be punished for making a film that is pretty controversial.

its a film that youll either hate or love, i cant say i hated it but say ive seen films with lgbtq+ topics that has been far better and heartmoving than this, but at a larger scaled budget for a much larger target group. but they have to start somewhere so its a small recommend from the grumpy old man
