"They knew some of their plans were illegal. But they never did them after all..." A nicely written mixture of comedy and drama about a nation gone dark in the 80s. How they become politicized, terrorized and forced to be depoliticized again by the cruel laws of "military government".
Film carries hidden messages about how illiterate and naive the people are behind their politicized and opposing faces.
Other than the main theme, to movie goes around a love story of "Crazy Emin" and a girl who has just came to the town from the big city.
It's a colorful, easy, fun to watch film if you aren't Turkish. If you are and if you have a little bit of knowledge of what happened back in those years, it may put a stone in your stomach towards the end...
