Some distortion and exaggeration about the history, not a must see film
9 April 2002 | by (Ýstanbul) – See all my reviews

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.
