Storyline

Having failed incredibly many times in attempts to find a big talent and to be rich, the two producers (played by Haluk Bilginer and Cem Ozer) and their only two contracted singers (played by comedian Ata Demirer and Ragip Savas) struggle to clean their debts and make their dreams come true, no matter what happens. Being in a tight spot, they rely on a gastarbeiter who they hear sing over the phone. They desperately invite him to Turkey. Then, out of the blue, an inspirational lady, Firuze, shows up and supports the gang both morally and financially. With the support they receive from Firuze, the gang start walking, slowly but decisively, towards their aim. Just when they think they really can turn things around, they learn that Firuze is actually a schizophrenic and they did it all by themselves. Written by hakan ergin

Mersmirizing.
17 September 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Saw this in London, the first time I saw a Turkish movie, and bought the ticket by mistake (I actually went in to see The Village!). When I realized I was watching a subtitled Turkish movie, I was about to leave the cinema, but had fifteen minutes before the Village started so I stayed on.

I was expecting a cheesed up Bollywood movie, but I was simply blown away. I stayed till the end. I don't think I have ever been so moved by a movie - it captures the essence of human spirit on the same level as the greatest movies of the 20th century. My only regret is that this will forever be unrecognized in our world. This movie invariably deserves to be in the IMDb to 250 movies of all time, if not in the top 25.
