A great movie!
28 February 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie in France back in 1979.One of the best movie I ever seen.I have been to both of the countries Turkey and Sweden and it was interesting to see these farmers coming straight away from Anatolia and hitting the Sweedish way of life at night.They see all the perversions of occident:couple making love in a phone booth,homosexuals etc...One of them has flashbacks of his wife in the Anatolian fields.I can remember one draw in a Stockholm's cold canal.I will never forget this movie and since I think I have a very few chances to record this movie on french TV I would like to know if I can buy it on either VHS or DVD.Thank you.
