Script problems aside, the fact that newcomer Feo Aladag has created such a strong-hearted drama, getting our attention and making us care, opening our eyes to such a senseless crime, is no small feat.
Aladag isn't a particularly expressive filmmaker, and she hits a few bum notes toward the end that feel more like movie payoffs than real-life drama, but she tackles this story with surprising nuance and depth.
Aladag fully engages with the complexity of the visual language in its entirety. When We Leave is a subtle cinematic feast for the senses, elevated by technical prowess atypical of an artist's first film.
