4.5 La trilogia di Kaplanoglu rappresenta uno dei motivi per cui amo follemente l' arte cinematografica. Tre visioni tanto ermetiche, simboliche, quanto poetiche e umane e...catartiche. Tre opere che parlano agli occhi attraverso potenti suggestioni immaginifiche, e, soprattutto, al cuore.
Yusuf’s “story” is built upon long shots which enrich the spectator’s eye thus s/he is invited to meditate. The story that is woven in the film narrates the journey of Yusuf to his soul in a well-contoured form. The hatred for mother and provincial boredom hidden in the spirit go out from the “well” in the darkness of the night.
This movie is definitely a favorite for many yet for me it was... Alright. That was pretty much it. I had some very good company while I am watching it, which made it easy to endure some very slow moments. Still, I will wait until I complete the triology for a final review.
