I have seen the movie in its premiere in Ankara, Turkey and I have watched the movie in the same theater with leading actress Zuhal Olcay and the director Tayfun Pirselimoglu. I think, being his first movie as a director, he did a great job. The movie got the Jury Special Award in The Montreal Film Festival and it really shows that it earned the award. Besides that, the movie caused some controversy in Turkey because of its (so-called) political insight and banned by the government for a short period of time. But Turkish film-goers are now able to watch that movie.
Besides being a good movie, it had some problems. There was a sound problem in the movie that some of the words were difficult to hear. Maybe this was the problem of the film theater because it was the opening day of the place.
