Cem Yilmaz is on the road to be the Stephen Chow of Turkey
A.R.O.G is the second movie of the successful Turkish comedy G.O.R.A. Director, writer and actor Cem Yilmaz created an excellent movie again. Movie's universal language easily caught all the watchers wherever he/she is from. A.R.O.G. is an successful example of modern Turkish comedy. A.R.O.G. is about a tricky Turkish man (Arif) that goes back in time for a million years and there he met with the Stone age people. Also Arif is a very caricature character it is really funny and feels real most of the movie. A.R.O.G is not a ZAZ kind of movie but we can find lots of movie references to Space Oddsey 2001, Apocalyptica, Jurrasic Park or Time Machine Like Stephen Chow made for Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Street, Cem Yilmaz made the same affect in Turkish cinema in G.O.R.A and A.R.O.G, not same success in special effects but seems satisfying and good enough. Definitely as a Stone Age thematic movie, it is far better then the RRRrrr!!! (it was a big disappointment )
