magnificent!
29 October 2009 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

this film will give you a chance to question the meaning of war and the mind of military. Nefes is an anti-militarist film. i found some similarities with Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket. in almost every war film, we say that there is no meaning in war. yes, it is. but if the subject is your country, it is not the case. sometimes you have to fight, kill people in order to survive. this film is actually about psychology of soldiers also of their families, lovers etc. almost every sentence has hidden meanings. i wish i could catch quotes! especially the letter of general to his wife :( thank you all for this masterpiece! you should watch it before dying.
