the best turkish movie
7 November 2003 | by (ankara,turkey) – See all my reviews

if you run an eye over the cast you can clearly see these are one of the best actors of Turkish cinema (sener sen, sevket altug etc.) and imho yavuz turgul is the best director of Turkey. well, this makes that movie interesting (and also strong), isn't it?

anyways, golge oyunu is briefly a story about friendship, losers and existence. i know these are all separate subjects. but, just watch it. and also, golge oyunu is the first (and only) fantastic movie experiment of Turkish cinema as far as i know. look at that, yavuz turgul has directed "The Matrix" 10 years ago :)
