Did You Know?


In order to create the set, an imaginary planet was built inside Antalya Film Studios, Turkey. See more »


The number that Arif dials in jail on the ship doesn't match to the number that appears on the LCD screen, since there were a change in the main sponsors of the film. Both sponsors were GSM Operators. But at the filming sequence Telsim was the sponsor, however at the post production sequence it was Avea. See more »

A fantastic Turkish Space Movie
23 November 2004 | by (Utrecht, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A fantastic Turkish Space Movie !!!

Maybe my background has a big role that I find this movie the best movie at last time.

We are overrun all time with the US films and film industry.

There are only the best US films, US film makers and the view of US to all idea's. Forget it!

G.O.R.A. is a proof that the other people can make a good film, with a good view of the another angle.

I thank the maker and the actors/actresses of the film very much that they have given a good gift with this film.
