In his second feature, Ivica Zubak explores the clash of social classes, when petty thief Metin accidentally rolls into the circuit of literary agents and publishers. Metin’s diary filled with poetic reflections gets him in a pretty pickle. And it provides an interesting glimpse of his tortured soul. He is too self-aware for the criminal environment of robberies and the underground Turkish legal system, but too unpolished for the cocktail parties and façade of the middle classes.
The humour emerges organically through contrasts and mutual prejudices, while the seriousness of Metin’s situation exerts constant pressure on the mind. Every time viewers think they know what’s coming in this story about exploiting opportunities, the film takes a surprising new turn. Metin potters on in the twilight zone between two different worlds. Will his aspirations and inner voice provide him with a way out, or will they be his downfall?
