king of Turkish comedy strikes again!
21 November 2004 | by (Izmir,Turkey) – See all my reviews

Kemal Sunal is (arguably) the greatest actor in the history of Turkish comedy films. As being a huge fan of his films and acting skills, i don't remember how many times i have watched this movie -must be more than 20- ,but i'm ready to see it again. copculer krali means "king of the garbage men" in English, both kemal sunal and another comedy great sener sen definitely shine in this comedy masterpiece.. this is a film about a naive poor garbage man (k. sunal-as apti), falling in love with his chief's (sener sen) fiancée. his chief hates him and his fiancée knows that apti is in love with her, so she uses his love to force the chief to marry her..apti may be naive but he is also an unstopping troublemaker to his chief as he unconsciously does many things to make him go insane.. great comedy and portrait of 70's turkey
