Quoting Henry

 

 

Now I am curious to know how this (I barely hold myself not to cry) is said in Turkish. This might be something I can use in Turkish conversations later. I am trying to improve my poor Turkish conversational skills, and sometimes mimicking common expressions, and learning phrases can help build confidence.

Well said, Henry. I am doing the same. Guess who is making notes when Turks are talking to each other...

 

According to recent linguistic theories this is exactly the way conversation is learned. Instead of analysing every word from the root we more or less consciously memorize ready units, structures which we can use as such or modify later when our skills improve. It is economy. Using these ready repartees we can keep the conversation flowing and maybe concentrate more on the things where we really want our voice to be heard.

 

One thing that helps also is to plan the topics beforehand and not just to jump into a conversation ex tempore. This is of course on the presumption that our intention is to learn and not just have a nice time which is important as well.

4) Gece, Melek ve Bizim Çocuklar

 

Mutual caring and friendship in the dark back streets.

 

Deniz Türkali as Melek couldn´t have been better.

I am happy you like it. I watched it long time ago and only thing I remember is that it was very touching. I guess I should watch it again.

Here is a great soundtrack from the movie.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fajKFUyeIno

 

Gece üşür meleklerine seslenir
Sarmaş dolaş arka sokak çocukları

Bıçaklar çekilir yüreklerimiz hep tetikte

Bu sokaklar korkulara dar.

Şevhetle biz sığındık birbirimize
Seviştik de öldük de öldürldük bile
Kaybedecek hiçbir şeyimiz kalmadı

Sanki bize bizden başka kim olur yar

Gece melek ve bizim çocuklar
Her uçurumdan sarktık
Anasını sattık babasını ağlattık
Düştük mü yoksa kalktık mı
Karışık işler bunlar
Gece melek ve bizim çocuklar

 

Back street children feel chilly at night

And hugging eachother they call their angels

Knifes are drawn, our hearts are always on the alert

These streets are narrow for fears.

We relied on each other with desire.

We made love, we died, even we killed

We have nothing to lose.

Who could be our friends other than us?

Night, angel and our buddies

We leant out of every cliff

We didn´t mind anything (literally: we sold its mother and we made its father cry)

Did we fall or get up?

These are complicated things

Night, angel and our buddies

I watched it again. It was very touching. Especially the death of Melek. Did you watch it with subtitles or not Abla?

The way these despised people accepted each other with an open heart and changed that shabby apartment into a home  -  even if it lasted for a short while. That is what I liked the most about Gece, Melek ve bizim çocuklar.

 

Thanks for bringing the song here, gokuyum, the lyrics quite well reflect the vibes of the movie.

 

No subtitles. I might have lost some details but was able to follow the story. Besides, it is a strategy: I try to let it flow sometimes, catch what is essential without paying attention to every dot.

5) Eşkiya

 

(Yavuz Turgul 1996)

 

I liked the way tragic and humorous elements meet in this movie. A man from the mountains who has been in prison for 35 years comes to Istanbul for the first time in his life. He is both amazed and confused. There is a strange peace and silence around Eşkıya and Şener Şen´s face expresses so much without words.

 

The contrast between the old bandit and the gang of young backstreet houligans makes you think of the level on which we people meet each other.

 

Eşkıya grows from a victim into a mythical character who gives everyone what he deserves. Or maybe not. All the killing in the last scenes was not well reasoned in my opinion. Baran saves a young policeman´s life as a gesture of mercy but shoots a man who beats his wife with no pain of conscience. A less fantastic end would have been more to my taste.

 

Women are presented as patients in this story. But once they make an action of their own things take a new course always. They are like catalysts in a chemical reaction.
