a review by Ceren Aksakal (istanbul bilgi university)
30 May 2002 | by (istanbul, turkey) – See all my reviews

This film is directed by Mustafa Altioklar and i really like the actors. However, the film isn't important to Turkish national culture. it is set in Cihangir (istanbul district)and i would recommend it to other people. it isn't my favorite film but i do like it a lot.
