  3. starless's rating of the film The Small Town

    Nuri Bilge her zamanki gibi döktürmüş, görüntüler inanılmaz güzeldi, hele o okul sahnesi yok mu... Yalnız keşke dublaj yapılmasaymış, oyuncular kendi sesleri ve şiveleriyle oynasalarmış. Küçücük kasabada Egeli teyzenin yanında TRT sanatçısı kıvamında tirat atan karakterler olmuş mu hiç, olmamış tabi ki. Mayıs Sıkıntısı'nda bu hataya düşmemesine sevindim Ceylan'ın. Onun dışında her şey şahaneydi. 5/5

  5. Ali Ercivan's rating of the film The Small Town

    There's a brilliant short film in there, but the rest... not so much.

  6. mcan543's rating of the film The Small Town

    The only thing what makes me give 4 stars not 5, is voice overrecording.

  7. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film The Small Town

    a young man wants get rid out of vilage that he trapped inside.Detailed dialogues and cinematography are pefrect for a director's first feature film. This is a low budget movie with non professional actors . İt has been shoted with 3 people including ceylan. There is a voiceover problem and some editing details ... but everything completed by ceylan ... There is no studio or production behind this movie.

  8. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Small Town

    "Kasaba" contrapone dos discursos. La primera es una ventana hacia la mirada infantil, una que siembra un lado inocente, pero también cruel. Está en su naturaleza, así como la misma dedicación cívica. La nacionalidad como una ventana al compromiso y el optimismo. La segunda parte es lo contrario. Lo adultos toman protagonismo y son cínicos, pesimistas y frustrados. Ceylan recrea un ambiente trágico pero esperanzador.

  9. Victoria L.'s rating of the film The Small Town

    Every critic is bound to be, more or less, subjective. You may find the storytelling boring or the landscapes too doom for your tastes, but that's the kind of film that revives childhood memories in the most honest and painful way. The life in the country, its unparallel troubles and the simplicity of its people. It's a humbling reminiscence.

  10. Scott Barley's rating of the film The Small Town

    A film of two halves. The impressive and the less so.

  11. Loraine's rating of the film The Small Town

    a couple of stolen images in there heh

  12. Francisco R.'s rating of the film The Small Town

    The movie begins with a wonderful appreciation of childhood and its urban locations under a scope that seems to attain so much more, but by the time Ceylan shifts his narrative towards a lenghty, enclosed discourse between the members of a family dealing with rather broad subjects, the transition between the visual grandeur of the first part and the strictly dialogical one in the rest of the film feels a bit rough.
