REVIEW

Dedemin Insanlari is visibly a typical drama movie made by Cagan Irmak. The director’s signature style in drama movies is well known, as well as his talent with them. Thanks to his past that includes many successful dramas, even seeing the promo pictures give you the hint that you’ll definitely be crying at the end.

The reality of Onur is sad and understandable, you can easily relate with the little kid which is having issues with his roots. But the real drama starts after he vents to his family about being infidels and not even real Turks and shows them how bad this situation is affecting him. After this, his grandfather will tell him the real story of him being immigrated to Turkey unintentionally as a side effect of war.

The movie is outstandingly well directed with the miraculous acting of every single actor. The story is too very much intense and gives you a blue feeling that you won’t be able to shake off for a while. It can be an emotionally tiring movie since it points to a lot of problems in the country’s past and present including Immigration, the infamous military coup on September12th, false imprisonments and foul treating, the difficulties of having a homosexual relationship, and even prejudices of the locals in some points. Still, if watched with a clear mind, the movie has a lot to tell you.

With a lot of pro’s and almost none con’s, Dedemin İnsanlari is definitely one of the many masterpieces of Cagan Irmak on Drama genre.
