The "so called" truths about state and mafia relation
17 January 2005 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

"Kurtlar Vadisi" - "Valley of the Wolves" was the most spectacular TV series production of 2004 in Turkish telly, by Show TV.

It is about a giant mafia organization and a secret agent who's actual face changed by operation, probably inspired from the movie Face/Off(1997). Since the producers claim that the story contains mafia – government relations and unspeakable truths, with strange incidents and extreme characters, this scenario is far away from reality.

In the "Valley of the Wolves" we face with a Turkish mafia group that is strongly established with a hierarchy that starts at bloody streets and ends up at the effective "Council", the brain of mafia organization. While the "Council" is working to takeover the control of the country and region, on the other hand, another secret organization tries to protect the country and regime.

Ali Candan, a special secret agent has an operation to become Polat Alemdar, who joined the mafia group with his new face and new identity. As "Can" Polat rises in the mafia organization, the story gets more complex and exciting.

Beside the great soundtrack, "Kurtlar Vadisi" draws attention with interesting characters, funny quotes, events, flashbacks and some comments about the important events happening in Turkey and across the world.
