The biggest production of Turkish history
23 January 2005 | by (United States and Turkey) – See all my reviews

Kurtulus is the 6-episode (6x1 hour) TV series telling the story of the Turkish War of Liberation (It also has a shortened film version, but its no good). It covers a 4 year time period starting from the Allied invasion of the Ottoman Empire following the First World War up to the Victory of the Turkish Nationalist Movement in Ankara against the invading Greek army in Western Anatolia.

With a record size budget, an army of actors and extras (literally, with whole divisions of the Turkish Army), and an unprecedented nation-wide production effort, Kurtulus stands alone as the biggest project in the history of Turkish cinema/TV. Almost every serious actor in the country plays a part, big or small.

The director, Ziya Oztan, does a good job integrating drama with documentary, and the series can satisfy the fans of both.
