A strange man with otherworldly talents becomes both a friend and a pariah in a small Turkish town in this drama from writer and director Reha Erdem. Yahya (Hakan Altuntas) is nearly in a panic when his young son falls into the river on a wintry day and looks lifeless when he's pulled from the water. But a stranger appears out of nowhere and takes the boy in his arms, and suddenly the child is breathing and perfectly healthy again. Yahya and his teenage daughter Neptun (Turku Turan) are grateful to the stranger, who they discover is named Kosmos (Sermet Yesil), and they bring him into town, where they offer to find him a place to stay. But Kosmos, who often prefers to communicate in inarticulate noises, doesn't care for his new accommodations, and he develops a bad reputation for his habit of stealing things, his strange diet (consisting entirely of sweets), and his desire to bed as many women as possible, including Neptun. Kosmos is on the verge of being driven from the village when it's discovered that he can heal himself at will, and others as well; folks eager to have their loved ones made well again struggle to put up with Kosmos's strange ways in exchange for having a man of his talents in the community. Kosmos was an official selection at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Kosmos
Two hours is a long time for something this restless and unforgiving - but it is fascinating, studded with moments of exhilarating beauty and remarkable, unexpected power.
Not your every day offering, admittedly, but a tremendously filmic exercise all the same.
Yesil makes a winsome savant, but his tendency to communicate with his beloved in loud squawks of birdsong proves trying, to say the least.
So portentous and superficially philosophical, it plays like art-house self-parody, betraying Erdem's visual grandeur in the process.
