Quotes

Mete Yüzbasi: Have you ever asked for a loan soldier? I did, banks didn't give me any. They expected me to own something but I didn't. Here I am, responsible for 39 soldiers and mountains and valleys and the sky as far as your eyes can see. But they don't see it as ownership. Because I don't have your deeds, you can't have deeds of people.

So real! Excellent!
23 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

One of the most realistic war movies ever. It's all about humans and no politics or nationalistic messages are artificially included as seen even in the best American war movies. An objective look to a real drama. The characters and their relationships that are put into the story background are carefully created and fit into the story telling perfectly. You can feel they are not bulletproof, perfect fictional heroes but fragile people from real life like anybody else. The thrilling flow through calm atmosphere and gradually increasing tension makes this movie exceptional. Fight scenes are also very impressive. A must see! Excellent direction.
