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

Deserves its Best Balkan Movie Award
18 March 2009 | by (Sofia,Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

I watched this one on the Sofia Film Festival where it was given the Best Balkan Movie Award. Although generally I'm not impressed with stuff like prizes I think it really deserves it, for it is a true Balkan movie - humane, intense, kaleidoscopic, emotional. Emotional in way that brings you very close to the characters; kaleidoscopic as it shows diverse nationalities, customs and landscapes; intense in building empathy for Ayça, the girl in quest for getting together with her loved one; humane in portraying all ordinary people she meets like the Kurdish refugees living illegally in Istanbul and her old Christian grannie neighbours.

Director's feel for detail and real life is extraordinary.
