Those who need to sort movies into various categories, who see drama as a baddies versus goodies game, who think heroes are only deadly serious supermen on a mission to save the world, those who think that digital effects can substitute the absence of creative imagination and that improvisation and clowning around pertain only to stand-up comedies... those people should not try to understand this wonderful film. Because nothing is as it seems in the world of cinema, only the people involved in it are real, their fates and their professional objective to complete the project. "Pek Yakında" was made by clever people for a creative audience and leaves a lot open to interpretation. Each cast and crew member find their own way, and the theme grows and matures without losing its integrity. There are no minor roles in the usual sense. Two characters, Zafer and Boğaç, seem to be pivotal to the plot, oscillating between self-deception, self-destruction, flight of fancy, despondency and a fatal love of their profession. Cem Yılmaz' and Ozan Güven's splendid acting performances make these characters natural and convincing, and create them with an engaging self-irony, far from any showy pathetic effects. Well plotted, creatively done. Directing, music, camera and so on, deserve respect. One of the most inspirational films about filmmaking and the people around it.
