Storyline

Lieutenant Sinasi, Major Kemal, Major Rifat and Colonel Reha are in charge of the Istanbul phase of a coup that will take place in May 1963 in Ankara. Since the four soldiers believe that a strong announcement is a vital part of a successful coup and attracts the people, they plan to read a version of the original coup announcement that will be read in Ankara. However, there is one thing that they do not take into account: the invisible power of the civilian life. Written by sinemalar.com

Too deserted to affect
4 September 2018 | by terry_harris_etSee all my reviews

On the outlook, Anons is an improvement over Fazil Coskun's previous film Yozgat Blues, adding a stylish noir type cinematography, but it's a step back narratively lacking the former's soul. The "frigid" colour palette creates a cohesive visual format to reflect the deadpan facial impressions of military men plotting a coup, not to forget the 'Frigidaire' metaphor as well. Still, absent-mindedness of the melancholic characters and arbitrariness of the shoved events squanders to constitute absurdism and comes off as a dish too cold to consume, too deserted to affect, leaving the audience as indifferent towards the film as the men in uniform are towards the plight of the coup.
