I began watching this movie expecting a somewhat dry movie about missing persons in Turkey's troubled recent political past.
Instead, I was pleasantly surprised by an imaginative script (thoughtful nods to Antonioni's Passenger); very good acting (ever wonderful Zuhal Olcay and nuanced acting from a wide supporting cast); documentary interviews effortlessly inserted into the story line (e.g. the heart-wrenching testimonial of the mother from Genc about her missing son); beautiful location shots(atmospheric Mardin streets and sites).
Except for some minor problems (sound in a few scenes) and somewhat ill-fitting voice-over (luckily in just a few scenes) this is a little gem of a movie!
