Koyden Indim Sehire (From Village to the City) is of the greatest comedy films in Turkish movie history. Although not well known as "Hababam Sinifi", this movie is as good, and even surpasses it in some scenes and quality of role playing. Four brothers discover a treasure in their village, and decide to cash it in the big city. The movie goes on in a funny way when "village smart" brothers turn to each other and finally lose all the gold. One of the best performances of the best comedy actors in the same tradition of "Marx Brothers"... Although this movie is culture dependent, and the humor in the movie can be fully understood by a Turkish person, with subtitles, I think this movie can also be real fun by non Turkish audiences.
