Audience Reviews for Dry Summer (Susuz yaz)
A Turkish farmer antagonises his neighbours and his younger brother by trying to monopolise the local water supply during a period of drought. I was a little disappointed with this. The argument over water rights, which takes up the first half of the movie, is (if you'll pardon the pun) shallow, repetitive and boring. There is some drama in the second half, but it pivots on such a colossal piece of gullibility that it's impossible to take seriously. As far as I'm concerned, anybody who confesses to a crime he didn't commit, trots docilely off to clink to serve his time and leaves the real culprit to "look after" his beautiful young wife, that sap deserves everything he gets, with interest. The film is very attractively photographed and has a good score. BE WARNED though: it does contain some senseless and unpleasant animal cruelty.
