Kosmos is a thief and a miracle-worker. He appears one morning in a tiny, snowbound border village where he is welcomed with open arms – on account of arriving just in time to resuscitate a small boy who would otherwise have drowned.

poetic retelling of 'the stranger' story - a stranger appears in a small community, is initially heralded as a saviour but eventually falls foul of the fears, superstitions & scapegoating of the village milieu - reminded me somewhat of Werckmeister Harmonies - Battal is another János character - a holy fool dropped into a world at war with itself
Bellezza tra le bellezze!
Il mio cuore si sciogliera' e
scorrera' attraverso le mie dita!
Come una tempesta, passera'
il mio tumulto interiore!
Voi avete... un nome?
Io saro'... Nettuno.
Se voi sarete Nettuno. Io saro' Kosmos.
An interesting film, commenting on multiple aspects of the human condition and its animalistic leanings. Some great stylistic choices and a glimpse into village life somewhere in Turkey. The ending is predictable yet not disappointing - merely cyclical.
Great example of 'How to misinterpret what cinema can be when images only become images for their own sake and the cosmos of film collapses because elements in the film don't talk to each other. Acting is stupidly theatrical, actors and non-actors stick out like shit on snow. Even though Tarkovsky's spirit is emulated here, I find the same fingerprints of forgery as Lars Von Trier. The same smell of set.
Excellent cinematography! However, there is something missing either in dialogues or in the philosophy of the characters; for that reason it is hard to get a complete satisfaction. Good work in anyway!
Film sanki bir David Lynch filminin yerli versiyonunu gibi. David'in filmlerinde imgeler arka arkaya film boyunca sular seller gibi akar ama film buram buram Holywood kokar. İmgesellik üzerine baş yapıt bir film. Kars'ın o puslu ve gizemli havası filme çok iyi oturmuş. Film insana 122 dk'da mevsimleri şaşırtıyor. Özgün ve felsefesi yüksek bir yapıt.
