Storyline

It is just after the military take over of the administration in 1960. The new head of state believes Turkey can only be independent if it is economically strong. After sounding out the weak private sector and most of the senior bureaucrats, it is clear that nobody has a similar view. So, he dares the government sector to see if anyone can design and produce a 100% original car within 4 months... Well, one engineer shares this vision and a small and dedicated team start working in a locomotive factory. Time is short and resources are limited. Many believe this can not be achieved. This is the story of a team of idealist engineers working on this vision. Written by AlexMax

A Realistic Natural Movie
6 May 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

This movie is a docudrama of a dramatic success story. I felt nothing exaggerated beyond the reality, the focus to the personal lives and details of the individuals are also very natural despite they have not from a documented source.

People who expect dramatic reality probably will like this movie. On the other hand, people those who are expecting momentary fiction, action etc. may not get satisfied with this movie. This is because the only abnormal thing in the movie is the design and prototype production of the car in within a too short time and bad conditions. All act are very successful reflection from real lives.

You may like it as any other good movie if you watch it without any bias or comparing to fictional films. In my opinion it is worth watching.
