Deniz Ipek Cekderi’s review published on Letterboxd:
I grew up in a country where Eurovision was hailed as a matter of life and death. As a nation, and as with most other nations I believe, we cried with every defeat and we laughed with every triumph. Will Ferrell understands this. He created a fairy tale. Its absurdity may baffle some but the film is not as absurd as the Eurovision itself, believe me. It captures the collective craziness, the passion, the ambition and the silliness of the whole thing perfectly.
Plus, Sigur Ros is a huge bonus.
Waiting for a spin-off or a second round with Dan Steven's Russian as the main protagonist. Alexander Lemtov deserves this.
