Transition to cinema from stand up hasn't been completed yet!
Cem Yilmaz is a real talent in the comedy world of Turkey.. He understands what triggers people to laugh well.. He is witty enough to change your mood with a series of jokes impromptu.. He deserves a straight A for his stand up shows.. However he is not ready for the cinema yet.. He has more than enough raw materials to make a good movie..But he is still unable to process those materials to achieve a mature art of cinema.. I don't understand why a talent like Mr. Yilmaz can not understand the movie making technique we saw in his first movie as an actor: Her sey cok guzel olacak.. The script, the twist, the pace, acting, jokes etc..all were very well balanced in that movie..Fortunately that movie was directed by someone else, not by Cem Yilmaz... He could deliver at least three movies with the material he wasted in this movie generously by disobeying the art of the movie making..He can not manage the pace and can not understand the capacity of an average movie goer's digestion of the verbal comedy.. This pace of machine gun shooting of jokes to the audience is very tiring and becomes boring after a while.. I recommend him to find a director to turn his scripts into more cinematic movies with a reasonable pace and harmony.. We are patiently waiting for a real movie from this talented guy for decades..I am sure that he will discover that technique one day!
