Excellent drama and comedy.
30 December 2000 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

I am from the country which the movie's story is about, Turkey. Seen this film several times in fifteen years and undoubtly I took pleasure in each time. It is about an honest, good hearted land lord having several villages. The movie is trying to show the end of the feudal system in south-east of Turkey by the influence of city life. It uses an ironic manner. Actually, in order to comprehend the story exactly and to take the same pleasure like me, you should be native like me. But it is worth enough if you interested in such a story. For me, it is one of the best 10 Turkish movies. Sener Sen is a living legend of Turkish cinema.
