Hama Ali Kahn,
Flawless casting, and touching tender issues of the contemporary Turkish society without hurting any particular political view. The three main characters of the movie have already proved themselves in Turkey, but I think the little girl is also likely to hit the big time when she grows up. The incidents are quite realistic, and the general setting is fabulous. It's easy to spend loads of money and make an FX-oriented film, but pretty tough to make a film dealing with social issues. I've hardly seen one single frame that fails to do the second in this one. Some people might find the conversations between the man and the girl a little overextended, and that's the only negative thing I can find about the film in general. Whoever is not a fan of the typical crappy Hollywood stuff, and knows a little about cinema, will definitely like this film. By all means, go watch it!
