Memet Ali Alabora,
A tax causes lots of pains in Turkey at the second world war times. This movie tells the problems of non muslim people in Turkey. Halit Bey who is a rich man has a mentally retarted wife called Nora. His wife is non muslim and when the tax started to be collecting, like other non muslim citizens in Turkey Nora and Halit Bey suffers because of that.
Some distortion and exaggeration about the history, not a must see film
I think the movie is over the average of Turkish films. But the subject of the movie is exaggerated and distorted. The movie dishonour the Turkish ethics by showing Turks as raper or murderer or Turks can do everything for money. I think there is some other things apart from this movie. I think some people wanted corrupt people by distorting the truth.
