Great Movie
26 November 2003 | by (Chicago, IL USA) – See all my reviews

This was my first Turkish movie and I love it! The actors do a great job and makes you really care for them. The plot is made with some twists and turns. Excellent Scenario, acting, characters, and music. Even though I was a little disappointed with the ending, I loved it. It showed how society has turned evil because of money.
