Awesome...
6 February 2008 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Another masterpiece from the one of most intellectual and creative directors of Turkey. Story is also by Irmak.

1- The incredible soundtracks that takes you away is by E.Reboutsika who won the World Soundtrack Award in 2006 by another Irmak movie "Babam ve Oglum" (My Father and My Son) 2- Cetin Tekindor presents one of the best actings I've ever seen. He paralyses the audience. Especially, the scene he begins to cry when he finishes his story and the children are talking about the Messenger they dream of.. 3- Story is very allegoric. No time and no place. And the presentation of this story is very original, since there are parts like "Dream of Ferhat", "Reality of Zekeriya", "Book of Mehmet" 4- Although lots of messages are given, the most emphasized is "The one who knows but keeps silence is as much guilty as the one who commits." In fact it seems to refer to the Military Regime started in 1980 and to the society that did not want to talk about it for years. Not only that, but also every society that stay silent against the evil kind. 5- The end is much more original. Story ends with "Dream of Saffet", which means it is your turn to dream about the end.
