Trailer: Time Bending, Mind Bending Turkish-made, “REMINISCENCE: THE BEGINNING”


The title is unfortunate, but the trailer is fascinating for this seemingly low-budget, but high-minded film from director Akçay Karaazmak. Accompanied by the tag, “What if time breaks down?”, REMINISCENCE: THE BEGINNING is apparently based on the true misadventures of a couple experimenting with time breaks and black hole theory. The resulting promo looks kind of wild.

Teetering between beautiful, surreal, eerie visuals and lo-fi, murky horror tropes (like the backwards crab walk) as it teases the collision of two worlds, REMINISCENCE: THE BEGINNING feels all manner of arty, weird and grandiose. I don’t know what to make of it, but I want to discover what the hell is going on in this Turkish-made, yet English-language bit of mind-warping. Here’s the full synopsis:

 A Slovak physicist Miska, had been working on black-hole theories and their connections with the magnetic fields in space. From her long researches she came out with some important results about the unproved parallel time dimensions. She found every 6 years, planets of our solar system come to a special position that effect each other’s magnetic fields and on their intersection areas, a temporally new magnetic field occurs. This could be used as a gateway to a black-hole. A gateway to parallel worlds. She defined the magnetic fields that will occur on earth. And the closest one to Slovakia will be in a town called Cesme in Turkey. She decided to go there with her boyfriend Akcay to research and experiment the event which she is expecting. But what they will face is much beyond the human mind.
