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 »

Personally, the best Turkish move I have ever seen
3 October 2005 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

This movie is far away from what we were used to in Turkish cinema. In fact, this picture has no hope whatsoever inside, and that kind of depresses you, besides a huge slap of reality. I think the movie is not made for criticizing anyone or anything, it is made to show how real, ordinary people are situated in our daily life. Contains black humor sometimes, it is dark and so real that it creeps you out. The acting is not even close to bad, actors have really got into their roles. And the directing is, a little new but better than I have expected. This movie is in the 1st rank in my favorite Turkish movies, and i think most of the people who watched it would agree with me
