This is a story of two legendary men, Karagoz and Hacivat, who lived and died by their sense of humor. Bursa, 1330. A an ancient, crowded Roman city at the border of Byzantium. Changed hands 4 years ago and the small Ottoman tribe is just being transformed as a local state, on the remains of the old Eastern Roman Empire. The story takes place in an unrecorded period time, the last 2 months in the lives of two legendary Turkish stand-up comedians, Karagoz & Hacivat?

Their legend and the truth about their tragic deaths are twisted and distorted, although their stingy humor still lingers on. After the the leader of the growing tribe of Ottomans, Orhan Gazi, notices the talents of two ... Written by
As one of the most important shadow play of Turks,Hacivat and Karagoz was transferred to white screen.At the starting,when I heart,I was very excited.But designed scenario by the scenarist doesn't reflect real story I think.OK one character is pure and innocent as aqua ant the other is canny as a fox about swindling.But whoever put this scenario into the screen would reflect that.The wrong point that I see is pretending is used very densely.Players struggle to look like Karagoz and Hacivat,but I think they aren't successful.
Beyazit Ozturk doesn't fit the role. We are used to Haluk Bilginer to act in roles of clever men.So,the role of in this film is a paradox with his historical progress.
Lastly,watch it but not praise to me...
