The bond of brotherhood is always stronger when you can be pitched into a life and death situation at any time and the only thing that gets you through the inferno is the trust that your brother will have your back. The firefighters of Hong Kong’s Pillar Point division who are expecting a quiet night to see off their retiring chief find their faith in each other stretched to the limits when a small fire at a liquor warehouse threatens to plunge the whole of Hong kong into darkness if it spreads to a nearby power plant supplying natural gas. Politics, rivalry, and suspicion all come into play when dubious decisions are made, warnings are ignored and colleagues start to fall. Can the Pillar Point brotherhood survive the night, if not the fire, with their trust in each other intact?

Zero memorable scenes except for the interminable 'game' sequence including Misty reciting A to Z all the terms used for breasts. Only novelty value is that Misty's sister Chelsea gets a co-starring role, but it's painfully obvious which Mundae was blessed with the looks in the family. Avoid like a Rebecca Black remix.

While he looks for a job, he stays with his uncle Mahmut who works as a photographer. They both have their troubles. Yusuf in finding a job, and Mahmut trying to let go of his ex-wife who is about to travel to Canada.Uzak is a good quiet movie with the same artistic cinematography as in a Tarkovky film specially when it shows us a more arctic Istanbul, then the more exotic one that we are used to. I also like the character, because it seems like they are themselves as they are, and only hide behind a mask, and we don't see Mahmut as an uncle or a guardian, but at the same level as his nephew, just another lost soul. Thumbs up.
