nice film
9 December 2008 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Cem Yilmaz, who is the funniest man of Turkiye, has broke another record with this film (with its hilarious and creative scenes of course). Unfortunately, for non-Turkish ppl, like most (even all) of Turkish films, many humours in these scenes were lost, since mostly attributions are about a life of a very classical and easterner Turkish person and his comments about Turkish social, political and cultural life. You will also childish joke scenes which I also didn't enjoy, too. I don't know, but, this must be his way of filming, on the contrary, his shows never make concessions about quality.

Another subject is don't expect a great visual scenes, as this is not a Hollywood film which one of the richest governments in the world supports financially, on the other hand, this is just a Turkish film (not the best one) which a company accepted to be the sponsor of limitedly.

Nevertheless, don't get disappointed yet. The film is more than 2 hours and each 5 minutes include at least one thing to laugh(for all). Well, this is no different indeed for non-Turkish speakers to watch this film or for me to watch "how i met your mother" episodes. I find "how i met your mother" as the funniest show ever, but, sometimes there are a few jokes American-ish. So I think it will mostly make you laugh, while it is important to watch it with a valid subtitle to understand every single joke, as this movie was filmed mostly to make people laugh.

Such a very small explanation for non-Turkish speakers; Ridvan Dilmen is a commentator (and an old footballer) who seems in late minutes in the film. In Turkish matches, whenever he says "it's a goal", well, there the shot then and it is. (damn! he is like a seer!) Well, he was not really the person who we expect to see in that scene all of a sudden.

Oh, I'd almost forget! Have I told you what record Cem Yilmaz broke with this movie? His first film, GORA, had been watched by about 1 million people in three days in Turkiye. Now, this is the third day and I think for AROG, this number has already rised up and still is rising...
