A fictive tribute to naivety of Turkish films in 1960s
Arif v 216 is a bit of a back step considering the previous films AROG and GORA. Yet I firmly believe it achieves what it sought. The film is mainly about traveling back to 1960s and experience the naive sentimentality of those times through the lens of Turkish movies of that time. Thus, one could enjoy the luxury of meeting all the greats of Turkish cinema in 1960s as if one were in a parade. The directing of the film is quite satisfactory. The acting of the lead actors is also quite good. The plot flows quite smoothly, which makes the viewing very enjoyable. Technically speaking, the film was almost flawless. All in all, I could say that with all the reference to our nostalgia included, the film is absolutely a nice and easy watch. However, I cannot state that it is a great film. It is a good film worth watching and enjoying oneself.
