A movie about migration from a small town to Istanbul, which was one of the outstanding realities of the 1960s.
4 July 2005 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Along with rapid industrialization and growth of capitalism in Turkey during 1950s and 1960s, another fact emerged: that was migration from small towns to big cities, particularly to Istanbul. Families who were actors of this movement faced with a new set of westernized values which were totally alien to them. In this story, the family is composed of six people; parents, three sons and a daughter. After arriving at Istanbul with a dream of 'conquering' the city and possibility of reaching a high standard of living, they experience a tragical collapse which end with death of the daughter. As a social fact, when ignorance and selfishness come together, big tragedies are likely to occur. Besides all other economical and social problems, in this movie, irresistible pressure of the family on daughter is worth to recall, for that, the elder sons have all the right to do and to live anything they wish. Some other films relevant to migration within Turkey have been made throughout the history as well, but this one is valuable in terms of fluent cinematic language and fascinating acting.
