Very personal journey
28 April 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Documentary filmmaker Marcus Attila Vetter goes on a personal quest for his Turkish father, who had left Marcus' German mother as a child and returned to his Turkish wife and family. The encounter opens up many old wounds, but ends on a happy note.

A very emotional film with beautiful music by Sezen Aksu and Kazim Koyuncu, and a declaration of love to the filmmaker's Turkish family. It also shows the conflicting cultures of both countries, as well as the universality of human emotions.

No soundtrack to the movie has been released, but Sezen Aksu's song "Kücügüm" is available on her album "Deli Kizin Türküsü". Other songs include: "Gelevera deresi" and "Koyverdin gittin beni" by Kazim Koyuncu and Sevval Sam.
