Iskender Büyük is accused of treachery and coup, and standing trial at constitutional court. This story about "GLADIO Organization" is being told from point of view of a deceived insider, and an ex-Special Forces Lt. Iskender Büyük.
This film was the the subject of heated discussions in Germany. Originally it was rated "Not under 18" by the FSK, but distributor Maxximum appealed this decision which resulted in a "Not under 16" rating. Then the film became a success, especially amongst turkish teenagers. The success resulted in massive media coverage. This in turn resulted in broad discussions from politicians (especially from the Bavarian conservative CSU party), youth organisations etc. about the films "Anti-American statements" and their influence on youngsters. After another appeal (from the minister for family and integration from Northrhine Westphalia) the FSK raised the rating back to the original "Not under 18". See more »

The film compresses a series of proved (in some cases alleged) atrocities by American soldiers in Iraq into a single story line. Fine. I have no problem with that, and it works pretty well because what is portrayed in the film rings bells of recognition by the viewer. We all know about Abu Ghraib about massacres at wedding parties about people dying of suffocation in closed transport trucks about rogue soldiers.
So is it propaganda? Maybe. But so what? It's no worse than the hundreds of American "action" films over the past several decades that targeted Eastern Europeans, Arabs, Muslims, Iranians, Russians, Latin Americans .basically, the rest of the non-American world.
I liked it.
