White Wolves and the Black Wolves
28 August 2005 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Kurtlar Vadisi, somewhat accurately translated as "The Valley of the Wolves" is simply the biggest hit in the Turkish TV Series Industry for the last two years.

It's plot is long and complex but I will try to summarize it. It tells about the control and organization of the Mafia, held by one supreme Council (Konsey), The council is led by a very professional and seemingly clean businessman Mehmet "The Baron" Karahanlı. The council's main objective is to promote the Turkish mafia and other dirty work including everything from drugs to politics over other countries' mafia and to practice quiet control over the republic's government.

On the other hand, also a fictional and complex organization, the KGT(Kamu Güvenliği Teşkilatı - Public Security Organization) exists to protect the republic's rights and to provide security from the other forces (In this case the council) acting in various fields. Ali Candan, who is an agent for the KGT, who had been acting undercover in Kosovo is called back to Istanbul and assigned to his new mission... Operation Valley of The Wolves. He is supposed to undergo some operations to change his face and he is provided with his new identity Polat "Can Polat" Alemdar. He commences his mob career and slowly rises to the top using his agent techniques and brains. He enters the council and he at last becomes the baron himself.

Kurtlar Vadisi has some of everything: Passion, patriotism, ambition, love and treachery. It even has some "manhood" culture for the average Turkish man... It tells the truth about some relations regarding some of the governors(of course names are never disclosed and everything is claimed to be TOTALLY fictional. ) to secret organizations and mafia. The Masonic Lodge, The Great Middle East Project, Bloomsberg, Sun Valley, Illuminati, MOSSAD, CIA, are some of the real world organizations that are mentioned. Other organizations are also referred to.

ALthough some find it untruthful, too surreal, and too "manly" to watch, Kurtlar Vadisi is exciting with outstanding plot line, cutting-edge gunfights, referral to real-world organizations and current events, with funny quotes and characters used in place. All of these and the spectacular soundtrack prepared by none other than Gökhan Kırdar(the music is comprised of Turkish folk music used in mixture with Kırdar's instrumental and deep style) make Kurtlar Vadisi the latest phenomenon of Turkish TV Series history.
