[Movie Review] Bliss (Mutluluk). Turkish. 2007.
Bliss (Mutluluk) 2007 (Turkish).
All the blue waters you will see in the frames, there is only one more thing more chaste in there: Meryem.
One village. It's customs. It's gullible people. And then there's her: Meryem.
All the power of the man. All the curses of humanity. All the tainted memories. And one; just one: Meryem.
It's a treat not only for the eyes, but also for the soul. All hell breaks lose. Yet she lives: that Meryem.
So clear that her eyes speak. So humble that the waves bow. So strong that the hearts change. What a soul: that Meryem!
It's an exceptional story with extraordinary character renditions and a breathtaking cinematography. And you can learn a bit of Turkish too!
I rate it 4.8/5.0.
