Cypriot Director's Beautiful Film
8 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

Turkish Cypriot Director Dervis Zaim made this movie with only a little money, three main players and a few theatre players. It became a new masterpiece after its premiere in 1996. It won 20 awards in Turkey and Out Of Turkey in the countries Canada USA England Germany and also Italy. With its beautiful music, widescreen presentation and also the unforgettable ending, it is the masterpiece of our Cypriot director. Also its DVD is great and there's available english, german and french subtitles. Beautiful unforgettable movie.
