Film description

Inside, the latest film from Zeki Demirkurbuz – celebrated with a retrospective at the 10th NH Festival, is an auteur adaptation of Dostoyevsky’s Notes from Underground, in which an unfulfilled writer and bureaucrat attempts to make an honest living in contrarian surroundings. In return, he suffers grotesque loneliness and frustration (akin to films by Koterski!). In a stunning performance lead Engin Günaydın has the main character howl in dogged desperation, egg the neighbor’s windows and cultivate a spud fetish. The main addressee of his complaints is a former friend, hack and plagiarist with whom a psychodrama standoff takes place during a celebratory dinner. A film straight from the gut, painfully authentic, hysterically vacillating between serious and slap, while still being sublimely Demirkubuz.

Information about director

Zeki Demirkubuz

Born in 1964 in Isparta, Turkey. He graduated from the Communication Faculty of the University of Istanbul. After his studies he became an assistant to the director Zeki Ökten. Striving for independence, Demirkubuz established a production company, Mavi Film, through which he still produces his films. Starting from his debut C-Blok (1994), Demirkubuz has developed a strictly original model of cinema – he writes his screenplays himself, he’s the producer, sometimes cinematographer, editor and even actor. All his films, e.g. Masumiyet (1997), were appreciated at festivals in Turkey and abroad. Demirkubuz’s work, especially the cycle Tales About Darkness (Karanlık üstüne öyküler), is rooted in the Turkish reality. It composes a consistent whole as a universal portrait of man abandoned to fate and destructive emotions.
