An absurd comedy classic
11 April 2001 | by (Istanbul,Turkey) – See all my reviews

In the final film before his death, Ertem Egilmez makes a perfect ending to his glorious career with this world class movie. The movie is an absurd comedy classic, nearly in the style of "Airplane!" and ZAZ movies, makes great fun of "Arabesk" culture. Sener Sen plays the lead role alongside of Mujde Ar who try to meet but cannot because of several funny tragedies. There are lots of humorous tragedies in the film just like in the old Turkish movies. Ugur Yucel's "Marlon Brando" impersonation is worth seeing, too. I recommend tihs film to everyone wtith some knowledge about old Turkish cinema and good sense of humor.
