…While many of his films deal with moral issues and concerns, Demirkubuz never sets himself up as arbiter of his characters’ actions. He rarely takes sides, preferring instead to show how each character has his reasons for doing what he does. Here, Demirkubuz treats the twin obsessions of Bekir and Ugur with respect. They might be self-destructive or even delusional, but there’s a kind of innocence to their passion. Demirkubuz was awarded the Best Director prize for Destiny at the 2006 Istanbul Film Festival.
