radical for turkey
25 October 2002 | by (izmir, turkey) – See all my reviews

I think this movie deserves a lot more credit once viewed within the context of modern turkey. without this context, the movie may seem like your run of the mill gruff-old-man-meets-cute-little-girl-and-sheds-rough-exterior story yet there is much more to it than that. i thought it was a very welcome move that the movie not only took a stab at police brutality and political persecution in turkey (which are everyday realities), it also challenged the standard, "progressive", ataturkist line about a homogenous nation (one nation/one language, etc). it was very touching to see the subtle transition that this man of principles experienced in coming to terms with the brutal reality of eastern turkey. the acting was also quite natural -- the vulnerability that the little girl displayed was superb.
