Unfortunately doesn't exist outside Turkey
30 September 2008 | by (Geneva, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Always interested in movies which are way better than the usual production,

I read these two interesting comments about it...

which gave we the feeling to have a look on it...

Unfortunately, doesn't seem to exist outside Turkey, in any sort of support, CD, DVD, nor VHS.

And anyway with no English/French/Spanish or German subtitles,

it wouldn't be impossible to understand anything,

because obviously I don't speak Turkish : a pity !

I just watched Babam Ve Oglum (Cagan Irmak 2005) (with subtitles... lol)

and frankly it's a wonderful great gem, unknown outside Turkey

If The Agha is as good as the mentioned above, a real miss !
