Bekleme Odasi, or Waiting Room, tells the story of Ahmet (played by director Demirkubuz), a failed screenplay writer who cannot adjust to the pressures of human company, and creates fantasies about his life and those around him in order to compensate for his own inadequacies. He comes across as an unsympathetic character, one who finds it very difficult to manage himself and therefore manipulates others instead. The cinematic style is reminiscent of Nuri Bilge Ceylan, with its long takes and lack of background noise - music, sound-effects, and the life. The viewer focuses on the character and his emotions alone. A little derivative, perhaps, in terms of its approach, but fascinating nonetheless, proving the extent to which the film camera can penetrate an actor's psyche, even when they appear to be doing nothing.
