below-average movie, being romanticized
12 May 2018 | by betultemizSee all my reviews

I watched this movie at theater today, and read many of the rewievs on the internet and I found it, such below-average movie, being romanticized.

As a Turkish viewer, all the dialogues are sound so rough that as if they are chosen, only to make the interpretation more simpler. Apart from that, dialogues stayed very simple and untidy that they were almost no two consecutive sentences said through the characters. And because of that all the characters stayed flat throughout the movie; they had a story to tell, but not much to say. There were gaps in the dialogues where audience are expected to laugh. This make the situation ironically sadder. I do not, even, want to mention about the ending, but I had to say that it was like a big cringy-joke. Throughout the movie, a kind of romanticism is 'wanted' to given and it is ended up in a mess.

Even though I found myself very open about the film diversity, such movies that ridicule audience is not the type that I like. I am very sorry to say that while watching it, I counted the minutes till the end.
