Rome Film Review: ‘I’m Not Him’

The desultory dishwasher having a impressive similarity to some colleague’s jailed spouse presumes their identification within Tayfun Pirselimoglu’s taking in however overextended “I’m Not really Your pet. ” Sticking with the actual helmer’s resolutely minimum design (“Haze, ” “Hair”), that stresses the actual surly solitude of recent guy, the actual picture functions 2 shows in whose power will go a way towards staunching the result associated with Pirselimoglu’s ultra-slow, nearly deadening sequences. Audiences currently received to brand new Turkish cinema’s planned pacing will certainly collect about, creating “I’m Not really Him” the holiday product along with attract the pre-prepared primary viewers.

Together with his France bulldog functions secured within an permanently emotionless frown, Ercan Kesal (“Mold” and many Nuri Bilge Ceylan pics) is the perfect boat in order to depict Nihat, solo kitchen area submit the medical center cafe. Function their peers obtain your pet to participate their own night trip having a highway prostitute, however it is Nihat who else will get nabbed once the legislation comes up. He has tossed within the slammer for any evening, wherever their cellmate will get brutally defeated with a policeman with regard to slamming their footwear from the pubs; Nihat provides your pet a few leg techinques permanently calculate, possibly to ensure that Pirselimoglu may completely communicate the actual figure’s nihilism.

At the office, Nihat is actually asked through Ayse (Maryam Zaree, “Shahada”) on her label supper; she has a strange chicken associated with unstable inspiration having a spouse, Necip, jailed with regard to forgery. In addition, she features a popularity like a slut (perhaps that is the reason why wetness is not required once they the actual unpleasant? ). Whenever Nihat views a photograph associated with Necip, he has minted through just how much they are as well — in case this individual just shaved away their moustache, they may be similar twin babies.

Ayse as well as Nihat rapidly get into the mutually open program: The girl provides your pet secrets towards the vehicle as well as residence, as well as, a minimum of in the girl house, they may become progressively just like a wedded few. This individual actually turns the girl to go to Necip within jail. After that some thing occurs Ayse, as well as Nihat, all of a sudden unmoored, will shave away their moustache as well as assumes Necip’s identification.

A fresh interesting idea, conceptualized having a level of nice secret, along with a mankind that could really feel fake in case almost all had been “normalized. ” Much more, still is actually desired through Ayse’s personality, who else continues to be an excessive amount of the cipher; the girl wish for someone, as well as appeal in order to somebody searching exactly like the girl spouse, tend to be easy to understand, however the girl will get absolutely no reciprocal pleasure from the unforthcoming Nihat and must work with each and every oz associated with friendship. Zaree’s charm is really powerful, the girl occasions associated with joy therefore brilliant (at occasions it is such as Ayse is woman actively playing house), that this part functions regardless of the lacking sizes.

Nihat is actually similarly unknowable: Possibly it is simply because their character evolves that this failure to find out within their mind seems much less difficult. As soon as this individual retreats into Necip’s character, this individual gets much more buzzing, their passivity tempered through interest along with a feeling associated with path, even though you however this individual does not understand wherever it is using your pet. Kesal is among the the majority of unique entertainers within Turkish movie theater, great incredible solid design, combined with guarantee which there is a lot more than satisfies the attention, can make Nihat interesting through starting to finish, in spite of the actual film’s overstretched pathways.

Pirselimoglu’s desire for the thought of getting another person, indicated within some other functions such as their books, gets to the apogee right here, and selection interviews he has permitted that this problem associated with identification — dropped, gotten back, thieved — is visible like a metaphor with regard to Chicken these days. Nevertheless it is to become go through, “I’m Not really Him” is actually aesthetically arresting, mixing the actual helmer’s clearly minimal, semi-frozen eyesight using the outstanding lensing associated with Theo Angelopoulos’ original m. g, Andreas Sinanos. Every person appears to can be found within extra-temporal solitude; skills tend to be very carefully calibrated in order to balance the actual numbers, like the light yellow-colored associated with Nihat’s family room, along with a despair clarinet quietly matches the actual strengthen.
