A feudal village in Southeastern Turkey in 1970's. A poor peasant, Feyzo returns from military service dreaming about getting married to Gülo, the love of his life. However, he has to face many obstacles. According to tradition, a man has to pay a lot of money to the bride's father in order to get the bride's hand. While Feyzo is trying to deal with the greed of Gulo's father who is asking for an astronomical amount of money, he has to also convince his mother, who wants to buy an ox instead of a bride. Feyzo overcomes all these difficulties, but he gets kicked out of the village on his wedding day by the landlord, Maho Aga, who is eager to protect his status against any threat. However, Feyzo goes to the big city on exile only to bring back more problems for Maho. Written by

Criticism has never accompanied to comedy so brilliant like this
Actually this film has introduced several new expressions to Turkish. I am sure that an average person in Turkey has watched this film at least ten times and what is attractive is that no one complains about laughing on the same scenes many times.
Sener Sen, who is comedy pioneer in Turkey, performed a brilliant act and Kemal Sunal accompanied to him. In addition the performance of Adile Nashit (mother of Feyzo) is so successful that you can easily see the standard mother model of east Turkey at that time. What is more, this production narrates the miserable side of east Turkey while Atif Yilmaz exhibits a magnificent masterpiece so that there is no such moment when there is not a pleased expression on your face. Although there are plenty of comedy scenes, Kibar Feyzo has succeeded in showing the class conflicts in 70s. The only negative aspect of this film is that, it only lasts 80 minutes. I invite everyone to sit back and watch this masterpiece. I am sure you will enjoy.
