Variety | 'Innocence of Memories' Review


Turkish novelist and Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk makes his second major foray into writing for cinema with “Innocence of Memories,” this time in partnership with British director Grant Gee. The fruit of their collaboration, inspired by Pamuk’s 2008 novel, “The Museum of Innocence,” is neither strictly factual nor complete fiction: A physical and psychological journey through Istanbul, it mixes imagined narratives with real-world observation, and a fictional narrator’s recollections with self-reflexive commentary. Marketing may prove a puzzle for a product that is neither fish nor fowl, but the pedigree of the filmmakers cannot be doubted.

The story is too old to be commented.
