as a realist film, it can be considered as 3,5 stars but it is not a documentary. i simply couldnt have find emotion. just like ice. this is not the taste of "the seventh art". the stories are broken, havent refined enough, interrupted. temelkuran is just enjoying his surname in turkey. thats all.
switching between Turkish and Spanish? I feel like the first thirty minutes was made specifically for me! Some interesting scenes (the walk home at the end of the Madrid sequence for instance), yet exhausting dialogue and characters I couldn't care less about. Fatih Akin does this better.
