Storyline

This is the story of Turkey's best stage band and its two members who faded away from that stage: Yavuz Cetin - Before jumping off the Bosphorus Bridge at the age of 31 due to depression, he was called "The Golden Boy". And Kerim Capli - He could play the drums, guitar, bass and keyboards with virtuosity. After performing with The Monkees and Jimi Hendrix in the USA, he returned to Turkey, only to die alone in a hotel room. Both had extraordinary talent. They left this world with lots of questions behind. But perhaps, the most interesting question was this: Should art be able to heal the wounds of a tormented soul? Or is it the wounds that really matter, bringing out the creative core? Blue attempts at exploring the lives of these two talents and their struggle with the society and their own minds.

A true musical tale...
1 September 2019 | by MidyetavaSee all my reviews

Two 'genuine' musicians, very different characters, perhaps some kinda' geniousity combines them in a very absurd environment that is, Istanbul,Turkey...

Blue is a movie you would most likely want to see, if your soul is not dead yet.

Yavuz is a rock hero for young Turkish rockers for sure... His blueish guitar, his strong, determined words... His musical lyrism, in a strong revolutionary call...

Kerim was and is always a center of attraction in Turkish rock bands, especially for drummers, along with his 'to an extend' funny stories...

They lived a life to be noted.

You can say many things about the documentary, yet after I had watched the doc. in the theatre, I had a chance to interview with the producers, and I had heard about the shortages of recorded footages for both Yavuz and Kerim.

This documentary is a very good effort to spot light on a very unknown 'Turkish blues'; perhaps 'a very lost genre', that can be called as 'underground' music, which was litteraly performed underground in the now closed night club 'Mojo':)

This is a very good effort to note the ones who deserve that 'notation'...

This will always remind me that 'not all the people are the same'...

A good watch.
