Korkuyorum Anne / What’s a Human Anyway? (2004)

Movies like these make me so hopeful towards the resurrecting Turkish film scene. Turkish vision is not beaten wives, extreme family dramas, wars and mafias, like most films represent. It is a more ironic version. Life in Turkey is what Korkuyorum Anne pictures sometimes: small neighborhoods where people struggle through life by holding on to each other. They have dramas problems, but they adapt to each other somehow. There is tragedy but people are damn funny.Maybe this is life in general…

I will definetely start following the Turkish director Reha Erdem after this movie. The characters are so developed and real, the feelings are emphasized harmonically bringing out colors of life. For me Reha Erdem’s style reminded me of Jean- Pierre Jeunet  (Amelie , Micmacs, The city of lost children) in this sense. Korkuyorum Anne is highly entertaining and smiley. Truly an original picture.
