A poet says 'To one thing on the earth my heart burns for / those who passed away in the spring of their life'. And it is Autumn: Sonbahar which in Turkish means the last spring. A great film with a minimalistic warm and sincere play.
film o iskelede bitseydi kusursuz olacakti benim icin...
I don't think I hv seen many films that so zealously subscribes to the conception of Cinema as a visual medium. The visual symbolism comprehensively transcends the plot here with many scenes containing the lead character himself conscious of the backdrop he is thrown in,trying to figure out his inner turmoil through the overwhelming nature that surrounds him. We have scenes slices of it in films like "Into The Wild" but hardly anyone as deeply imbibed of it as "Autumn".
Ofcourse, if you have a little bit of knowledge about recent political history of Turkey, it'll help discerning different shades of emotions lead characters go through but it's not at all a prerequisite to appreciate the brilliance of filmmaking involved and should not make any difference to the overall impact movie has.
It is really difficult to believe this is the work of a debutant director.Sonbahar a.ka autumn is exactly what the name claims it to be. It illustrates the solitude and desperation of a man who has lost the best part of his life in jail and has to confront the autumn of his life filled with regret and emptiness. The manner in which the film achieves this is what makes it special.Rather than resorting to words and melodrama to evoke emotions, the film uses the landscapes and human behaviour to reveal the inner angst of the characters. Sonbahar is set in a beautiful little village in the mountain ranges of northern turkey .Just couple of hours down the hills a small seaside town.The entire film is spent in slowly yet beautifully capturing the journey that protagonist makes between these two places,which in turn helps us identify with his emotions. This is more of a mood movie, do not expect a traditional plot or a definite conclusion to it. Recommended for its beautiful cinematography, visual storytelling and performances, especially by the lead actor Onur Saylak. The director Ã-zcan Alper is definitely one of the talents to watch out for in the future.
Åiir gibi...HÃ¼zÃ¼nlÃ¼ bir Åiir...Sanki yavaÅ gidecekmiÅ gibi....Ancak o kadar gÃ¼zel akÄ±yor ki film...Karadeniz baÅrolde...Helal olsun diyorum Ã§ekenlere...
excellent cinematography and a subtle story about useless ideals of a lost generation...
Beautiful camerawork ...but a very poor script
One of the best lyrical visual narration with a good script and acting and music is supporting this narrative
En iyi tÃ¼rk filmlerinden biri.
this is not a movie, this is a box of very good photoshopped pictures....
