The Kurdish film “Samyan”
"Samyan" is a 62- minute drama film is written by Ismail Hajani and Mohammad Jano. It is also directed by Jano himself. The 2013 production stars Rekish Shahbaz, Lolan Azad, and Bangen Ali. Most drama films over play it with the theatrics but "Samyan" has a tantalizing and inexplicable thrill. It's a perfect example, as Alfred Hitchcock, the famous English director so elegantly claims, "Drama is life with the dull parts left out."
The film starts out with a manager and a secretary and their love affair. It slowly plays out and the audience initially assumes that the story line will be a romantic tell- ing of the two; however, the audience finds themselves sorely mistaken as it's about their illegitimate child. The mother is, of course, in favour of keeping the child and tries everything in her power to save it with the help of a nurse who works in the hospital.
This particular film takes a heart wrenchingly different approach to storytelling, revealing the truth behind love affairs and unexpected pregnancies. "Samyan" is a recommendable movie best suited for rainy days.
