Retaining the Bees: Netflix | Dangerous Beekeeping Weblog


It’s nice to know rather a lot about bees, though it typically comes between you and time. I loved Retaining the Bees, a Turkish-language drama (2019; 93minutes), however some bee-science was forgotten within the lab and the jars of skinny honey was cringe-worthy. However the film was good.

I don’t know the way lengthy Retaining the Bees has been taking part in on Netflix, however we caught it final night time. I’ll attempt to not put up spoilers, however here’s a very temporary synopsis. The central character (Ayse, within the picture above) returns to her village from Germany, the place she had been working for ten years. Her mom is dying, which prompted her return, and certainly, the aged girl dutifully checks out of the script within the first jiffy. However first, she bequeaths her apiary to Ayse. It’s not match. Neither is the return of the brilliant and fairly younger girl to her homeland.

There are some moderately bizarre bee scenes, that are unforgivable from my perspective, but additionally some native bee lore (indigenous information), which I totally respect, even realizing we will disprove a few of it. The truth that Ayse imports an English queen to the apiary of Caucasian bees made me gasp. The native bees had resided and tailored to the atmosphere of the Turkish Caucasus mountainside for hundreds of years. Now comes the brand new British queen. Nicely, this, after all, is a significant theme of the film. You actually can’t come house once more. Or are you able to?

The movie has attractive surroundings, a reasonably good script, glorious performing and directing. In case you don’t perceive Turkish, you’ll need to learn the sparse dialogue, as I did. Look previous the errors that the bees make alongside the way in which and benefit from the film. It’s value it.
