Adems Trains aka Adem and the Devil (Adem´in Trenleri) 2007.
5 February 2008
I really enjoyed this movie. I was quite taken by the scenery, the amazing photo and the skill among the actors. Nurgül Yeşilçay was stunning in her performance as Hacer, and I can’t wait to see more of her in the future. This is truly a feel-good-movie, and it was nice to see something southern European/Middle Eastern for a change. It’s too bad that their film-making seems to be very underestimated, I’m sure people would change their point of view if they were to lay hands on this precious Turkish artwork. Thumbs up for the children’s performances (especially Adam), but I’d watch it over and over again for Nurgül’s appearance only. She did a great job in the Turkish/German movie „Auf Der Anderen Seite“ last year, so I wasn’t surprised to see her doing an equally good job in „Adem’in Trenleri“.
