a dramatic film about two young Kurdish struggling for survival
8 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting movie about conflicting yet similar ethnicities, namely Turks and Kurds. It is violent and bloody yet not senseless at all. There is only one point about the movie which is a big flaw of the movies that is made to have non-related people hate about a nation or a group; the bad guys (Turks in this case) are so bad, immoral and inhuman that after some point you feel like you are watching a science fiction or a war propaganda documentary like those shot during WW's. One more point that should be made here to be honest with the audiences is that the Kurdish group advertised in the movie is accepted officially as a bloody terrorist organization in all Europe and the USA and the guy appearing as the leader is now being rotten in a prison cell betraying his own people.

Overall, you will not regret watching this movie but do not take it as a real-life situation.
