The best Turkish film ever
14 March 2003 | by (Izmir, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Makes fun of love stories. Ironically its a very good love story itself. Great comedy, great cast and great story line... Really shines! This is the only one that i really like watching over and over in Turkish cinema. I rated it 10 easily.
