Comment ( Stolen from imdb):
This flick is the one of the most distinguished and independent productions of Turkish movie industry (Yesilcam). Rude street slang can be very usual for American or French movies but it is very unacceptable for Turkish films. It is hard to be showed widely in domestic halls, and on TV it is even more impossible. But “Gemide” breaks this wall and honestly reflects the street language, lifestyle, people of big cities if Turkey.
Most people sees this one as a Tarantino-styled Turkish movie. It is quite a big claim ,but is inevitable that an ambiance in dialogues exists like Tarantino style. Although the dialogues are funny ,they are also so explicit to slap on some viewers face! They are just like the normal people’s speech.
Of course it is not only the speech makes this film fine,chosen places also effect the audience.We feel like a man on board and hearing the captain’s yells!The acting is perfect ,all cast is fluent and good ,but Erkan Can (the captain) is awesome!Also one interesting thing in the movie is that the prostitute has no cues.The movie goes on only at the aspect of men.
Most parts may be difficult to comprehend for non Turkish speakers and the audio recording is not brilliant, but “Gemide” must be seen by foreigners especially!
And some facts about the movie:
The movie was made before the Kocaeli earthquake on August 17th. In a scene the captain says “The buildings made with the sand we collect from the sea will return to the sea” In the earthquake, the buildings made with sea sand in Kocaeli was buried into the sea. And the movie was aired on television for the first time at the night of the earthquake. 😕 Interesting
