Storyline

Turkey's northwest has suffered a devastating earthquake on August 17th, 1999. The government is in need of lots of money to compensate the cost of recovering from this catastrophe. So they decide to pass a new, temporary law, which suggests that every man of Turkish citizenship over a certain age can now pay some certain amount of money to the government of Turkey, and in return for that, complete his military service in 28 days instead of the regular 18 months. Many people want to take advantage of that, including famous singers and businessmen, and they're all sent to the same army base to carry out their 28-day-long military service. One of them is a young man who has lost his home and his entire family in the earthquake, thus being allowed to join the 28-day crew without paying anything. Obviously, he's much different from anyone else around him, by all means. But he's not the only different one. There are many interesting and almost strange people there, one of whom cannot even ...

A Mustafa Altioklar Film
4 December 2006 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

O Simdi Asker(He Is In The Army Now)is a nice idea of observing the Turkish Army. I felt that the story was nice, actors were good especially Mehmet Gunsur and Ali Poyrazoglu were great. Scenario was good up until the end but it was a big mess up in the last 10 minutes. I was also a bit mixed up with it whether it was a comedy or drama.

The story takes place in an army base where all soldiers who fulfil their duties for only 28 days with a payment. It was a once-made law after the big earthquake in 1999, August to compile some money for the government to recover. This arrangement of course allowed so many Turks who had been escaping from the army. Of course, there are so many different characters and some funny and sad stories and of course love too.

I am not a big fan of Mr. Altioklar's. His films get out of his directions somehow. In this film, it was the same problem and also as I mentioned above the ridiculous ending. Well, it could have been a better film but so far his best film I have seen anyway. ** out of *****
