A breathless story about love and faith!...
24 February 2003 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews



This is a story about love and faith. The author discusses the two comparable concepts based on the beautiful novel of Aytmatov.

One can say many things about the technical handling of the film. But besides, the story flows slightly and fetches the viewers eyes till the end. Questions appear on mind; What love means? What does faith mean? Can love keep a couple together? Did you ever fall in love? OK, then answer this; did you ever TRY?!?... A woman with a baby stands between a one who loved too much, and another who did try his best.

Sometimes life do not allow you to choose. It forces you through its own stream.

Kadir Inanir and Turkan Soray starred in many films together. This film is one of their best few. Ahmet Mekin was shining, as well. You'll love the movie, if you are one of those who likes stories which sparkle questions on one's mind... And a little warning; watch out for your tears...
