Taste of Cherry

Taste of Cherry ★★★★½

‘’I know that suicide is one of the deadly sins, but being unhappy is a great sin too’’. 

A beautiful and intelligent film in its minimal setup. I expected a heavy depressive film but it wasn’t quite like that - of course it was tragic - but it was more about reasons to live rather than to commit suicide. Philosophical and poetic dialogue can be heard throughout, with very nice acting and beautiful actors also, the uncomfortable scene with the soldier was perhaps my favorite one. Maybe it lacked a real emotional impact on me to consider it as a masterpiece, nonetheless its still a beautiful humanistic experience.
