Somersault in a Coffin /( Tabutta Rövasata) /1996/ Turkish

FiC Rating: 5/5
Dir: Dervis Zaim
Why FiC recommends?
1) There are simply not enough words to describe the quality of this project made with modest budget, which reaches the very top of world art cinematography and which is a film reading for every person who takes film art, in the true sense of the word, seriously.
2) Dervis Zaim is a director who creates the physical into the metaphysical. In this film, he explores the theme of life, friendship, love, innocence and deals with social realism, as the perseverance of simple people notably our Mahsun (Ahmet Ugurlu) a drifter and petty criminal through all life’s misfortunes, as his motives that lead him to tomorrow. A Must watch for all cinephiles.
