Storyline

Late 19th century in Alexandria. Two traditionally rival Turkish families, "Seferoglu"s and "Tellioglu"s are competing for the "Green Valley". The winner will be determined by Daver Bey, who has a beautiful young daughter, Leyla. Both families try to arrange a marriage between a man from their family and Leyla, so that Daver Bey will be inclined to give the green valley to his "relatives". Tellioglus, who are behind in the race, desperately find a final solution: They will fake their idiotic butler, Saban, as the highest ranked Ottoman soldier in Egypt: Tosun Pasha.

Unconditionally meritorious!
13 September 2004 | by (LA, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is notably one of the praiseworthy Turkish flicks ever filmed. Not only the culminating acting and terrific sense of humor, but harmony among eminent Turkish 'acteurs' are gotta to be seen. Hence, catch it when you recognize.

Kemal Sunal (aka The king of Turkish absurd), Sener Sen, and all others infamous for their fun, have some kind of acting in Kartal Tibet's unforgettable masterpiece.

So-and-so, other Turkish movies like this, include: Davaro (1981), Inek Saban (1978), The Dunce Class on Vacation (1977), Kibar Feyzo (1978), and Hababam sinifi (1975).
