I have started watching Turkish movies just recently. I have watched "Babam Ve Oglum" and Mutluluk and both were amazing. So, I decided to watch more Turkish movies. But frankly this was a huge disappointment. This movie has a very high rating and I just can't understand why. I never laughed once. There are some comedy movies which I don't like but at least you can guess why others might have liked it. Maybe it is black comedy or it is too slapstick for my taste or something like that. Here I couldn't get anything.
I thought that I was the only one who disliked it, but I saw the top 1000 voters and they have given it an average rating of 5.2. Maybe Turkish humor is too quaint for outsiders. or Maybe it is just lost in translation, I don't know.
