[Our thanks to Serdar Kökçeoğlu for the following review.]

Mustafa Kemal Atatürk was the founder of the Turkish Republic and as such, continues to be a delicate subject for the Turkish government and the wider society. The tales of Atatürk's life and struggles have always been presented in some form of legendary tale. This is the reason why, up to this day, certain aspects of his life remain still a mystery. Historians and artists who have been taught about Atatürk at school are taking great risks when referring to him in daily life situations, because his strong vision for a modern society made him being widely remembered as a hero. And though Mustafa Kemal's lifelong legacy was to create a well-structured republican culture, we should still be able to observe him from other angles.

When Can Dündar's cinematographic documentary 'Mustafa' hit the box office in 2008, it was a very bold attempt compared to his previous TV documentaries about Atatürk. »
