Storyline

Three years ago, in real-life, Hama Ali, a charismatic actor from Iraq famous locally for his performance as Iraq's version of Superman, met Ayca on a film-set. He and Ayca, a fiery actress from Turkey, had a passionate love affair before returning to their respective homes. From his Kurdish village, Hama Ali sends Ayca video love letters which he has filmed on his handycam. She watches them from her sofa in Istanbul, with her cat for company. The video love letters capture the hellish violence engulfing Iraq, the goats and uncles populating his rural area, and also his tender affection towards her. Feeling suffocated by her own city and angered by the indifference towards the war that surrounds her, Ayca decides to make the journey eastwards to Iraq to be reunited with her lover. GITMEK, a dramatic feature film, is based on the true story of Ayca's departure from Istanbul and her extraordinary journey to the Iraqi border. At a time when many people were fleeing from East to West in ... Written by Anonymous

Interesting
20 August 2008 | by (Sarajevo, Bosnia) – See all my reviews

i saw this film on Sarajevo film festival in 2008 and we had an opportunity to meet the actors and the director. i was very excited about seeing it, since i love turkey very much and i read a lot about the film and it was highly recommended to me. frankly, i was a little disappointed. the film is interesting and wholesome, but for me, it was full of prejudice and subjective comment on the region and nations living there. i suppose it's their film and their lives are in it, so they can make it however they want, but it is unfair to impose your own opinions about other nations and cultures without any chance for true objective insight. overall, i'm happy i saw it and it was very interesting. it is really a nice love story and i was somewhat impressed by the actress. the actor i didn't like so much. :) also, i hate the English translation of the title and in general translation in the movie is somewhat bad in my opinion.
