It is a simple and honest documentary unlike all the accusations.
4 February 2009 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

This documentary was criticized too much that i couldn't stop my self writing a comment here. Initially some people put forward that this documentary insulted Atatürk as especially demonstrating his affairs with women, smoking and drinking alcohol. Some people from the government suggested that the documentary had better be banned to community. Many students and teachers thought that the director shamed and accused him being a deceitful person and he really meant it. some others said that he must have been paid by the Armenians. Anyway, I watched the documentary from the beginning to the end carefully, being afraid of the possibility of coming across some of the accusations above. No, I am saying only no! the documentary is simple and honest. I recommend everybody from every age to watch this documentary carefully. Everybody will understand it must be seem normal to drink alcohol and smoke a cigarette in some circumstances especially after building a Turkish assembly, forming a regular military force, defending against the occupying enemy, improving the economy and creating a profane revolution against some very religious and fanatic people.
