The beginning of the movie involves Turkish police brutally murdering the family of a little girl (Hejar). This is very well done and got me riveted. The girl then escapes and is found by a neighboring retired judge (Rifat). The rest of the movie is the story of their difficult adjustment after this tragic affair. She is Kurd. He is Turk. He doesn't want her. She wants her mommy. The danger is lurking. He tries to make her blend in. He tries to teach her Turkish. She curses at him. They form an awkward bond.
Well, the question is: do you like this interaction? I personally got a bit tired of it. I found the little girl frankly annoying and thought the story was not moving along fast enough. Not to say that it wasn't cute and interesting. There was just not enough meat around the bone. A bit too simple. Not overly funny or touching. Ordinary.
