"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.
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.
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.
