Cracks in Concrete
Ertan (35) went to prison as a tough, aggressive kid for manslaughter and is released after 10 years - broken and scarred by his time behind bars. Mikail (15) has dropped out of his apprenticeship, hangs out on the streets with his boys and is saving up for his rap mixtape. Ertan is looking for Mikail. Mikail doesn't know who Ertan is. How do they both deal with the harsh reality when Mikail finds out the truth?
"The great strength of Umut Dag˘s intense rap melodrama lies in its almost documentary-like closeness to its protagonists. With a dynamic camera, he follows the young people through the clubs, to rap concerts or as they simply go home. In particular, the outstanding Murathan Muslu as Ertan puts the son's forceful pose into perspective with the nuances of his facial expressions alone."
"It's hilarious, but there's hope: this is how great cinema works!" SKIP
