Takva Reviews:

Takva - A Man's Fear of God is one of those movies that playfully enact conflicts of fundamental importance for the globe we live in. Takva begins off with humble Muharrem, an introverted single boy living in Istanbul, being drawn into the inner circle of a Muslim brotherhood he has adhered to ever since his childhood days. When the erudite and strikingly pragmatic leader, Sheikh Cemal, appoints him as his financial organizer, Muharrem gets endowed with all the amenities and trappings of a modern globe businessman. He has to accumulate rent and administer the order's finances. His naive will to live a life according to what he thinks is the will of God clashes not only with his unfulfilled sexual desires, but also with the mechanisms of power within the order. The brothers' lifestyle may be conservative, but they run an organization that is totally intertwined with the show day social, political and economic life of Turkey. For Muharrem, who hardly understands any of this business, this means that each step he intends to create for the greater glory of God draws him ever deeper into the quagmire of corruption, lies and hypocrisy. The authority he is endowed with actually makes him haughty and hard to deal with, while his accumulated frustration increasingly throws him into literal fits. Everything escalates when he comes face to face with the girl he desires... The plot for this nice movie is based on an old folk tale from Turkey about a boy who refuses to marry the daughter of his spiritual master although he clearly loves her. In Onder Cakar and Omer Kiziltan's adaptation, the narrative serves to expose the inner mechanisms of puritan Muslim orders and throw light on the mental set-up of its loyal members. The movie is pure fun to watch due to countless instances of nice irony, a remarkable love for feature and breathtaking scenes of ecstatic rituals. While the filmmakers were very attentive not to ridicule the milieu they're depicting, their critical approach accounts for a movie that substantially supports understand the method political Islam "works".


... seems to be the question at the heart of this Turkish movie about a easy boy living a easy life until his globe is turned upside down when he is suddenly exposed to the modern globe in the service of his religion. Muharrem is at the center of this hero study. He is a very nondescript looking boy of about 40 who has been in the service of sack dealer Ali Bey and his family since childhood. He is named an apprentice, but he acts basically as a stock man and runner of errands. He has been stuck at this mission since he was a kid with no hope of being more than he is, and he seems fine with that. He lives a easy life in easy quarters and rigidly adheres to his religious sect's guidelines without question.What changes everything is when the leader of his religious sect selects Muhareem to be the organizer of finances for the group. With absolutely no training in this zone and no prior exposure to the modern globe and culture, he is thrust into a position of authority wandering about city collecting the sect's rents. When he is handed a cell smartphone to call Rauf - his superior and adviser - in situation he has questions during his rounds, he looks as though he has been handed a piece of biomedical equipment that he gotta somehow assemble.Muhareem finds himself morally challenged and psychologically troubled when he is exposed for the first time to power, money, and sex. The power comes in the form of regard that he's never had before from folks who have previously treated him as though he was invisible. His fresh sexual temptations come in the form of things as easy as having to walk past a long line of female mannequins dressed in lingerie on his method to accumulate some rent moneys. Muhareem has never seen such sights before, and later he is having disturbing dreams. Also, he starts to see an equally troubling change in his own personality that seems to be needed for him to do his fresh job correctly, but goes vs the grain of all he has ever believed to be righteous.This movie is set in Turkey and the sect in question is the Sufi branch of Islam, but it should easy be set anywhere in the globe and involve any religion - the themes are universal. Highly recommended.


Like all nice works of art, Takva is a easy story: a boy corrupted in an incorruptible globe of a religious order of Sufi ecstatics. And like all nice works of art, the storyline is at once utterly banal and profound beyond measure. A humble, self-effacing Muharrem, a devoted member of an Istanbul dargah is brought into a seemingly irresolvable inner conflict by the humility of his spiritual leader Cemal who acts on a dream that came to him from God, and appoints Muharrem the order's property administrator. The man's easy globe and relationship with God is destroyed by an incomprehensible chasm that develops between his understanding of his faith and the leaders' whom he deeply respects and depends on. The storyline said by lesser masters than Cakar and Kiziltan, would probably end up a silly makeover of a Forty-year old Virgin in Istanbul. But in their hands, Takva, God's omnipresence in the lives of the protagonists, is not just a believable story, but a masterful narration of a self-assured purpose, said at once with a nice deal of human care for, and at the same time with a stoic detachment from, the predicament of a easy man's soul. The end result is a brilliantly balanced irony. On the lvl of the plot – there is the unconditional respect for God's will in the two order's leaders which forces them to appoint and hold Muharrem vs their better judgment observing his fear of God is that of an eunuch, and there is the unconditional respect for God's will by Muharrem based on his straightforward demand for purity and compassion. On the micro level, the writing has dashes of intelligent insight into human interiors: a sigh from master Ali, Muharrem's employer: "now I am the idiot's secretary" , and the order's counsel Rauf's revelation in "take this watch, brother; it keeps time precisely; it is made by the heathen". The ecstatic chants and movements of the dervishes' dhikr as a background create the film an extraordinary experience.
