A masterpiece of Turkish comedy, 7 November 2004
Author: Erdem Aksoy from Turkey

70's were the best times of Turkish comedy, in this period lots of movies were shot and these movies are still the favorites of the Turks. The movies from Ertem Egilmez (one of the greatest Turkish directors ever) opened a new era in Turkish cinema. I should say that the actors and actresses who took part in the movies were also really good, maybe the best generation of Turkish cinema(so called Yesilcam). Kemal Sunal, Sener Sen, Halit Akcatepe, Adile Nasit, Munir Ozkul, Tarik Akan and many other great actors acted in these movies. It was like a festival to see all these famous people in the same movie. Sut Kardesler (The Foster Brothers) is one of the best movies done in this time. There are three soldiers who are called the Foster Brothers and they are somehow related to the general (Sener Sen). When they are in the general's house some strange things happen and the fun starts. The movie is about the Ottoman time so don't get confused by the clothes. (this was a note for the non-Turks) I call this movie a masterpiece and give 10 points.
