Critic Reviews for Honey
Filming in long, meticulously sculpted takes, Kaplanoglu is especially good at emphasising elements within the frame with inventive use of focus and the positioning of the camera.
A thoughtful and intelligent film, and should appeal to adventurous souls.
Like the viewer, Mr. Kaplanoglu is quite happy to let nature do the talking and cast a lyrical, mysterious spell.
The tight framing of Kaplanoglu's fixed-camera tableaux and the film's almost supernatural colors lend the scenes a glimmer of deadpan wit, as if they've been intensified and distorted by the prism of memory.
Though this graceful film is a minor addition to the canon of Middle Eastern cinema in which nothing and everything happens, Bal is still a beauty.
Audience Reviews for Honey
It's son-father-religion triangle that is narrated in best possible way.The beautiful ending turned this small movie to a masterpiece . Didn't expect such a great movie from turkey's cinema. Honey alongside Distant is one of the movies that define turkish cinema in current century.
The last film of the trilogy, winner of the Golden Bear this year, tells the story of Yusuf when a sweet but shy little boy and his deep and strong relationship with his dad.
Naturalism, quietness, simplicity. Lovely.
To see: Süt and Yumurta.
The film can be felt through the expressive eyes of this amazing boy actor from Turkey, without whom the whole experience would be indifferent.
