Overview

A Tarkovskian dream-like landscape, featuring the inhabitants of a Turkish retirement home where pranksters, artists and old casanovas seduce us to confront the true nature of time.

Review

We follow obscure, hazy images into a retirement home in Istanbul. Outside, the landscape changes with threatening roars from construction machinery. A creaky-voiced woman talks about the horrors of the Armenian genocide. An old pianist plays a mellow tune and a blind photographer fiddles with his camera. The inhabitants roam about the place like ghosts. Director Shevaun Mizrahi visualizes the memories of these old, lonely people on a remote planet, and creates a wholly new kind of magic through images. Distant Constellation haphazardly blends painful memories from the past, reflections on life and surrealist humor against the backdrop of the malicious development scheme. The result is a wonderful work that discovers a hypnotic rhythm amongst people stuck in the limbo inside the dilapidated house. [JANG Byungwon]
