Rather depressing Turkish movie that details a impoverished father trying to make a better life for his son. He decides to move himself and his son to Instanbul to try to eke out a living so that the father can afford an education for his son and yes, buy a horse. Things of course do not go so well for him, as he is forced to become an illegal street vendor, stay in squalor, and try to enroll his son into school, even though the state run school has strict requirements about getting in. Let me tell you one thing, Instanbul is not a place I'd want to live in. Seemingly male dominated and crawling with people talking to themselves, the director creates a devastating portrait of modern day Turkey, and apparently got thrown in jail for his efforts. The film itself is alright, I guess. Though the film is rather depressing and most people would skip right over this one. Finally, I can't finish this review without mentioning how much the lead actor looks like Torgo from Manos, The Hands Of Fate. You're half expecting when the father leaves his village for Torgo to show up and spurt "I take care of the house when Master is away!"
