Best Historical Turkish Movie Ever !!!
14 January 2007 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

This movie is based on the comic book "SON OSMANLI" by Suat YALAZ -and "YANDIM ALI" is the main character of the story. At the years of WWI Yandim Ali (Kenan IMIRZALIOGLU))is a vagrant man who plans to run away from military service and plans to end up at europe for a better and easier life. (Like most of the youngsters today in Turkey! :) But accidentally he meets General Mustafa Kemal and this changes everything. Under the influence of Mustafa Kemal's great charisma he discovers his nationalism and his deep patriotic feelings. And a very challenging also surprising story begins for him and for his lover (Cansu DERE). First of all it's nice to see high budget movies of Turkish comic books. Yes this is a fun movie! But at the same time it's a sad story of two lovers. So emotional and touchy... (Ladies will love this movie!) The movie has a budget of over 3 million USD. Extremely well made and probably "the best historical Turkish movie" ever! A "must see"! -Note that this Turkish movie will be released not only in Turkey & Germany but entire europe for the first time!
