The Synopsis for I Saw the Sun (2009) 720p

In the southeast region of Turkey, the Altun family lives in a small mountainside village plagued by a 25-year war, making their daily life a hellish struggle. As the war continues to intensify, the family is forced to migrate west to the city of Istanbul. While Haydar and Isa Altun decide to stay in Turkey with their young children, Davut Altun and his family migrate north to Norway, enlisting the help of smugglers. They eventually reach their destination and find work in a supermarket, but life as refugees proves relentless. Back in Istanbul, Haydar watches over the family as his wife undergoes an operation due to pregnancy complications. Their son makes friends with a group of transvestites, helping him to understand why he has felt different all of his life. While liberating, his newfound identity is seen as a disgrace to the rest of his family, leading him to flee from the abuse it produces.

The Reviews for I Saw the Sun (2009) 720p


An ordinary and boring movie with one good messageReviewed bybilinmeyenoseyVote: 3/10

About the movie: One of the messages of the movie which is the problem of Turks and Kurds is very useful and must be emphasized. Turks and Kurds are brothers and of the same team. Another message, which is the homosexuality doesn't have anything to do with the movie's general outline and I still can't understand, why it is there. Most probably in order to gain the Western audience's admiration. The funny part is about Norway. I don't know if the Norwegians somehow paid for the movie but there couldn't be any better propaganda for the country. I also live in Europe and we all know that Norway is not paradise and has other (maybe not financial or material issues but definitely social and pertaining to the Norwegian behaviour to foreigners) problems.

About its Oscar-candidacy: Well the West does like topics like homosexuality, political instabilities in a non-Western country (Oscar is quite political sometimes) and especially the well-known sun-symbolism. I don't know if Mahsun Kirmizigul also became part of the so-called Hollywood-initiation, but it can hardly be a coincidence that the sun is so emphasized in the movie. I don't really believe that it is going to get the prize.

it is far far away from being a classic or what so everReviewed byEchoMaRinEVote: 7/10

I watched the movie yesterday and thought on it for a while. Let me share my humble opinion on some aspects of the movie. The story was crafted to make it as tragic as possible by putting problems of people who were forced to migrate in the focus and spicing it with social adaptation. While trying to point some problems like terror and the social pressure, the choices were too far from each other. If the story was focusing only on the migrating family, it could have been much better. The gay issue didn't fit the whole movie at all and it looks like a patch trying to gain sympathy. So, for the plot, it is over exaggerated tragedy. Acting is good, especially the main characters did a pretty good job. I am afraid, I can't be that positive for the directing and technical aspects. The fighting scene was very clumsy. Overall camera usage was pathetic. This movie is an Oscar candidate by now. I don't think it has the slightest chance. Although the movie is quite good in some aspects, it is far far away from being a classic or what so ever...

War in the CityReviewed bykosmaspVote: 6/10

There is no war in a city here, it's during unrest let's call it. If you are not familiar with the situation Turkey and the Kurds are having, you want to read up on that. It's not necessary to understand the movie/follow the story. It might be interesting to have this as a backdrop though to refer back to.

It's about a family in troubled times as you can imagine. One that has not only to face outside danger, but also has quite some turmoil inside the family. Feelings get hurt, but there is also violence especially with a thinking that may seem very backwards to a lot of people. Sometimes that is used for comedy (when it comes to technology or the "wonders" they achieve) but this is mostly a drama, with high stakes for every one involved. It's not easy to chew on and there are quite a few bumps along the road, still this has the right ingredients, it just needed a bit of a better direction and less confusion in parts
