An excellent thriller based on the real story of thousands
15 October 2006 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I've just seen the movie and when I think that It was made in 1976 I just can't help myself from thinking deeply on this hidden success. Before seeing the movie I hardly heard about the movie and most people living in Turkey don't know there is a movie based on such a sensible and tragic story of thousands of people who emigrated from the countryside of Turkey to Europe without simply knowing anything about the new life they'd come across when they get there. The story cover all what you expect; cultural shock, immigrants being looked down on and being humiliated, xenophobia, incurable dead-end, betrayal and what's more important of all; struggle simply to survive... All those who describe themselves Europeans and criticize minorities living in their country of not having been able to integrate themselves to the society and still staying isolated deliberately should see this movie and think twice before making such cruel criticism. It explains quite well how so-called "criminals" of today once was the victims of the past.
