I couldn't make it all the way through this either.
26 September 2000 | by (Anchorage, Alaska) – See all my reviews

You can add my name to the list of viewers who, like Ms. Dunigan, could not make it all the way through this. The location shots of Istanbul were this film's only redeeming attribute. (Rent a travelogue instead.) The sound might as well have been recorded with underwater microphones, and the plot (?) is totally incomprehensible. Don't waste your time on this turkey.
