Cinematography, Drama, Editing, Photography, Acting.... all excellent: 10 on all elements. A masterpiece indeed.
Turkish Cinema has evolved to levels all Turks can be proud of.
Very sensitively and intelligently developed climax, in which the chronically abused son Tarik provokes the much needed break-down of "village rigidity", personified by his own father. The choreography never fails to carry the main gist of the synopsis: In a war between dogmatic rigidity and dialectic dialog, the latter wins by natural superiority. Is it realistic ? Why not ? Drama can go in any direction. It is very uplifting to watch goodness overcome dogma-based ignorance.
I laughed, I cried, and I applauded this cinematic beauty.
