Storyline

This is a movie within movie, which is almost recursive, i.e., the movie inside looks like director Ceylan's previous movie, Kasaba. It is about the movie director, Muzaffer, going back to his hometown to make a movie using a cast of local people. While Muzaffer is around, his mother complains about simple health problems, his father is in a legal fight against the government for his land, his cousin gets out of his job to help Muzaffer who promises him to find a job in Istanbul, and his little cousin Ali tries to carry an egg in his pocket for 40 days so that he'll get the watch of his dreams. In the meantime, they get to form the cast for Muzaffer's movie as well. Written by zuluf

life : a reality or a fantasy?
23 September 2001 | by jeanvigoSee all my reviews

Having seen this movie had the same effect on me as I first saw "tree with the wooden clogs" by Ermanno Olmi. It was like being part of a real life (of real people). No imitations, no caricatures, nothing artificial, nothing but the life itself as we all live it. Yes there is love, there are expectations, there are hopes, everything that is part of life is here. It's these art pieces that still give me hope for humanity. They make us see how pure we all are, despite everything imposed on us by commercial approaches in Hollywood cinema.

The dialogs, the acting, the directing all support this pure approach in this film. Human beings are all reflected in this movie without any makeup (in both sense). The director's first full length movie "Kasaba -The Town" was a small masterpiece. Now this movie proves that he can still create masterpieces, even when he enlarges his vision.
