Must See Foreign Movie
18 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is about two construction workers who are trying to save up enough money to leave Turkey to go to Italy. However with a little twist of unexpected events their lives turns out to be far from anything they have dreamed of. The reason I have given 10 to this movie is not only its story, but also its filming techniques. Obviously as a Turkish movie, it is far from being an expensive production, however it still manages to top its standards, especially within other foreign movies.

I am really glad to see how the Turkish film industry is improving itself. I have seen many foreign movies, however this stands out of all. Comedy and crime, plus effective film techniques distinguishes this movie from the rest.

It is a must see if you like to see something beyond Hollywood production!
