Mommy, I’m Scared is a "sweet pie” made up of childhood traumas, fears caused by the steps to manhood, and questions surrounding one’s relationship to one’s own body. Focusing on a group of families, friends, and neighbors, the storyline is set in a nostalgic, romanticized, and colorized version of the "Istanbul neighborhood.”


Synopsis

Mommy, I’m Scared is a "sweet pie” made up of traumas, fears, heartbreaks, and hopes of many kinds. The storyline revolves around a group of families and neighbors, intertwining frequently with thematic clips full of light-hearted descriptions about being human, and with the fears induced by the oft-praised steps toward manhood. While the film’s questions lie heavily on man’s relationship to his body, an expensive ring seeks a way to embody true love. The film’s art direction and the characters’ social ties reflect a perfectly romanticized and colorized version of the "old Istanbul neighborhood” (in a now-gentrified location). This is a dense film, with Erdem furthering his interest in the repetitive use of images and sounds in addition to the artificial colors, busy ensemble cast, and the natural human concerns that crop up everywhere. Erdem binds everything together in funny, somewhat melancholy harmony.
