| Fast, colorful, loud.. but very good.
Neredesin Firuze is a fast-moving, very colorful and lively movie. Ezel Akay, still new to the big screen, successfully demonstrates his original style in film-making. His scenes are crowded, painted in rich, festive colors, and things are in movement most of the time. Despite the continuous movement, sometimes-distracting environments and loud music, Akay seems to be able to keep the tempo under control and he cleverly uses it to visualize emotion.

Despite the movie is essentially a light-hearted satire of the popular culture in modern Turkey, it partially endorses it by employing both thespians and 'popular' people with less cinema experience. Nevertheless, From the master Haluk Bilginer to the singer-to-actor Ozcan Deniz, all the cast members do their job well in this spinning juke-box, and the movie does not bore you for even a second.

The soundtrack is exceptionally good, full of original music and modernized traditional Turkish songs performed by the most popular -and generally, talented- singers in the industry. Even if you do not want to see the movie, give the sound-track a try.
