Kosmos

Director: Reha Erdem

Turkey, 2009, 122’

Kosmos is a thief that creates miracles. He comes crying to this timeless border town from the mountains like he is running away from someone. He saves a drowning little boy as soon as he comes to the city and he becomes known as the one who creates miracles. Kosmos is not an ordinary person. We never see him eat or sleep. His only need is tea and his only nutrition is cube or granulated sugar. One of his surprising talents is to climb the tallest trees easily and to sit on the thinnest branches like a bird. Kosmos expresses one of his desires that startles everyone with honesty; He searches for love. A weird intimacy forms between Kosmos and Neptün, the sister of the little kid he saved. They imitate bird sounds by shouting and screaming like they are meeting with their shadows and they play together.
