admirable
22 September 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Almost a parable. About ages and refuge and sense of life and fall of worlds. About the way to define yourself. And the clash between long term childhood , with its innocence , and the real life. A beautiful- sad film. Admirable work of Kemal Alper as Yusuf, great storytelling and the atmosphere. A film about fundamental choices and the end of a time.
