This Turkish movie BAL, stood out for its amazing landscape, where it was filmed, somewhere in the Turkish mountains, close to the Black Sea. It was a very slow paced movie, showing the little boy Yusuf, who suffered from severe stuttering, but had a close tie with his father and only with him he whispered and talked.Director Semih Kaplanoglu put more emphasis on the images,telling the story without much dialogue. Here the acting and the facial expressions were important, the music was minimum, even so the movie created a suspense, made the viewer wonder,what shall become of Yusuf? And we would find it out at the end. Turkish child actor Bora Altas who played Yusuf did this amazingly well and showed many heart warming scenes.Hope it will be in the nominations for Best Foreign movies at the Oscars.
