32nd International Istanbul Film Festival – Best Film

A strange but beautiful black-and-white mix of comedy, tragedy and fantasy with a hint of poetry and a touch of splatter movie, Thou Gids't the Even recountsf the ordinary troubles of people with extraordinary abilities. It explores sorrow, hope, and the insanity of human nature through the life of Cemal a bored and depressed football referee in a small Turkish town with two suns and three full moons. He wanders through life despondent and unfulfilled whilst surrounded by an invisible teacher, an immortal doctor, and a beautiful girl who can stop time with a clap of her hands. The apparent absurdity of it all is truly captivating.
