It is an amazing and surprising Turkish film
28 November 2011 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

It is an amazing and surprising Turkish film I had ever seen. I deeply recommend it. Thanks for everyone who contributed in the production of that. Istanbul tells her own fairy tales... A gypsy clarinet player as the pied piper,little red riding hood as a mob courier who's just got out of jail...

Cinderella, an transsexual prostitute in love with an innocent youngster.... A princess, "the fairest of them all" escaping from her executioner encounters the eighth dwarf in the jungle that is Beyoglu... An uneducated, poor, and hungry young man who's just finished his military duty and arrived in Istanbul looking for a job, meets Sleeping Beauty... The five stories of Istanbul Tales, written by Ümit Ünal, are told with surprising integrity by five directors. These five separate stories are interconnected with mathematically well structured transitions. I love it. :)
