Storyline

The sailors who were duped by woman sellers, want to steal their capitals to retaliate from them. There are four men and one woman in a ruined boat. Four lazy and dissatisfaction sailors. The woman represent lust, delectation and appalling potential enemy. The men know each other but woman is unknown. Four of them know the responsibility of life. The woman is dangerous with her chastity and her depressed wishes and she represent a chick who gets men's life into trouble. Four men signpost themselves with a breathtaking game, with their decrepitude and modesty, sometimes with their depressed and additive beauty in a closed location. And none of them can not get off without a loss. Written by omayra73@yahoo.com

A bad finish and boring scenes
14 July 2007 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

I watched the film yesterday at home, 8 years later. Firstly, there are too many bad words, about in every sentences. The start is not very good, but it is alright. It is an interesting story, later we learn in the film. The development of the movie is good, but there are too many unnecessary and boring scenes, such as collecting sand from the sea. The end of the film was terrible; is the famous gemide movie this, we said after the film. And about 8 years later, a new film of Serdar Akar,Barda release. Barda is also consists of slang language, it must be Akar's choice. But it does add no art to film. Erkan Can's performance is the best thing in this movie.
