關於導演

影評:

《戀習銷售員》是一部難以定義類型或風格的電影。有人把它與北歐電影、地中海和美國獨立電影相比較,但沒有人拿來與其他土耳其電影相提並論。導演很高興能拍出一部跨越類型的片。

 

「在土耳其電影裡,」他說,「藝術電影/影展電影和票房電影之間有著明顯的區別,很高興我的作品能跨越界線,」他確實做到了。

 

《戀習銷售員》不是典型的喜劇、愛情或家庭劇。導演將這些元素與他獨特的風格融為一體。正如故事大綱所說,「這是一部讓人看了身心舒暢的電影。」

 

 

Synopsis 

Alis, a 36-year-old bachelor, is one thing in particular: a dreamer. His father has thus finally kicked him out of the house, which is why he must now live in his car. After a few professional failures and desperate attempts by his mother to find some kind of work for him, Alis finally gets a job as a sales rep for vacuum cleaners. Over time, his demo model “Karnaval” turns into a faithful imaginary friend. One day, he seriously falls in love with Demet, a rebellious and sensitive wedding cake baker, who is an equally odd bird, still lives with her father and dreams of moving to Istanbul. This enjoyable love story between two mavericks who could not be more similar and more different at the same time is full of ironic moments and tells the story of two ordinary people who create a world of their own outside the limits of social conventions. But this world is shaken when “Karnaval” suddenly disappears. In his entertaining, bittersweet debut feature, Can Kilcioğlu portraits the life of those “invisible” young people in Turkey's anonymous urban jungles who want to break free from family bondage to lead a self-determined life.

About the Director 

Born in Izmir in 1982. His latest short film “The Cat On The Road” won Best Fiction Short Film Award in 15th Adana Golden Boll Film Festival and received 10 other prizes. “Karnaval” is his first feature.

 

Reviews:

“Karnaval” is difficult to place in a specific genre or style. It’s been compared to Scandinavian cinema, Mediterranean and American indie films, but to no other Turkish film. Kılcıoğlu is happy to have put his signature on a film that blurs lines.

 

“In Turkish cinema,” he said, “There is a clear-cut distinction between art house/festival cinema and box office films. I am happy to defy these distinctions.” Indeed, he has.

 

“Karnaval” is not your typical comedy, romance or family drama. Kılcıoğlu has blended all of these with a style that is uniquely his. As the tag line goes, “this film will make you feel good.”
