The Kur­dish film “Samyan”

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - H.G. Has­san

"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.
