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

love is different for all people whereas same for all
12 August 2009 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

before mentioning the film,the first thing for me to be done is to evaluate director's mind.firstly,reading director's mind will help us to understand some points in the film.director wants to transform typical images and perception of audience.for example;ugly girl falls in love with an elderly Iraqı man,not an handsome Italian man.love is different for all people whereas same for all.the main message of the film seems like that for me.also one more point:love is stronger than all wars between nations since it is an infinite struggle between man and woman.human and nature.human and God. finally,i can say that film contributes a different aspect to Turkish cinema aggregation in spite of its some failing points such as not to deepen its matter.
