| a well-rounded movie that captures raw human emotion
For the first comment, you said only the french actress who played the role of the old lady does justice to this movie, I completely disagree. It seems like you put an excessive amount of emphasis on the development of characters as opposed to the storyline and meaning of the movie. First of all, Chelton is supposed to be the central character in this movie while all the other characters play the supporting role. So it goes without saying that she is obliged to outshine the other characters. In my opinion, this is a very well-rounded, touching movie with deep messages. It paints a balancing, beautiful portrait of life in both metropolitan and rural Turkey. It is one of the better foreign movies I have seen in recent years. Each character's performance is so real and down-to-earth that the whole movie feels like a real-life drama, albeit a profound one. One thing I want to add is that this movie never indulges in sexuality like many other foreign movies do so it elevates itself to a higher, more artistic level.
