Crossing the Bridge

Watched: yesterday
Genre: Music, a lot of music. Documentary.
There is something deeply enigmatic and attracting in Istanbul. Crossing the Bridge (The Sound of Istanbul) is a fantastic curtsy to music in the megapolis and Turkey in general. You will hear Turkish vibes from jazz to traditional performances.

The Director, Fatih Akin, was born in Germany but is Turkish parentage. Somehow he managed to catch the spirit of the city and to present it in a highly melodic way.

To me, top-good are the Orient Expressions part (described as ethno techno) and the Ceza's Holocaust hiphop performance. The father of one of the Ceza boys made great comment on the modern music and the hiphop.

In short: Don't miss it!
