Storyline

Yazi Tura (Toss Up) is the film of two stories taking place in 1999. Stories of two young men... One is "Ridvan the Devil", a young football player from Central Anatolia, Cappadocia / Goreme, and the "Cevher the Ghost", a young man who is living with his father in Istanbul. Both went to the army together, and fought in the Eastern Anatolia. Both had dreams and expectations for their civil lives back home. After their military service Ridvan goes back to his village with his right leg missing, the leg that he would score goals with, due to a mine explotion. Neither his fiancée nor his friends treat him the way before. What Ridvan has been through during the war actually brings him down with time. In the same mine explosion Cevher also lost his hearing ability of his right ear, but he is going to go through a greater change after he rescues his father from the wreckage of the Marmara Earthquake.

Trivia

Ugur Yücel, the director wanted to cast Ozan Guven for a major part; but the actor was then working in Cem Yilmaz's G.O.R.A. (2004). The actor, however, appears for a few seconds as a soldier on the field alongside Olgun Simsek, the lead. See more »

Great cinematography
25 October 2004 | by (US) – See all my reviews

You should watch the beautiful cinematography in historical Cappadocia! Roy Kurtluyan has done a great job as director of photography on this part of the film!

Keep up the good work Roy, we're proud of an Armenian cinematographer's great work in this controversial film!

Yazi Tura has received 11 awards on Golden Orange (Altin Portakal) Film Festival in October 2004. Awards include: Best Film, Best Actor (Olgun Simsek), Best Director (Ugur Yucel), and many more.
