Touching and well done
12 February 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Fantastic movie. Mahsun has done a great job in bringing a very touching story to the cinema. The delusional turd that commented that the movie is pure propaganda needs to get the poll that wedged up his rear end removed asap.

I did not know anything about the movie when i went in to watch it, however within 20 minutes found myself pleased with the decision to go see it.

The performances were great and true to the culture of traditional Turkey, wonderful. The slow and question start to the movie is long forgotten by the time the end credits begin. Once again, fantastic movie, job very well done.

I highly recommend.
