I have seen this wonderful movie a couple of times and in each time I got the same pleasure and never bored. The movie basically gives one vital lesson to its audience and it is that every human being has to have a talent or let's say every person has to do at least one thing professionaly in their lifes in order to survive in case of hardship. I would like to give an example about this. Zugurt Aga was a rich man in his town and even does not need to do anything because he has a lot of assistants next to him but despite he is very good at cooking "cig kofte" (let's translate as "raw meat balls" to English) and when he lost all of his belongings and became poor, he immigrated to big city (Istanbul) and started to sell his homemade, delicious, original cig kofte and eventually be happy.
