I don't remember if I gave only 1 point for a film in Imdb until this film but this one really deserves this judgement. The plot is very clichè, nothing new, boring and amateurish. Terrible acting. This is a fine example of a absymal movie. Avoid it if possible.
I had earlier impressed by the negative critics to reject to see the film. But thank goodness I saw it and I thought that this is a film full of poetry. Of course this movie is not for Star wars kind lovers. but much more philosophical, poetic and engaging. of course it has a very slow narrative way but not to bore you, on the contrary it makes you more curious about the continuity of the film.
The acting is excellent beginning from Mr. Bilginer and Miss. Nur Surer. But there are some screenplay errors such the house stolen keys detail. How she can get in the house if her keys were stolen out from her boy friend? These kind of errors ruins the total narrative. And we don't know any clue about Tarik's past that his pshycological deseas come from. Overall good thriller base narration specially in the beginning.
A real story about the Cuban investigation case against proUSA anti Cuban activities. Great narration and amazing suspence. 2 hours extremly thrilling. Thanks Olivier Assayas.
