Sonbahar means autumn , in Turkish . This is a piece of heart . It has nothing fake . No one is posing . Surely one could learn from such results . People live in a wonderful part of this planet . People different from the rest of us ? I have found many common feelings , although I live elsewhere . Politically determined . Fall can heal . It seems slow but it moves without any useless delays . It waits for the spectator to taste and remember , then it goes forth . Memory reveals hidden or lost feelings and images that more or less we all keep inside . I did found peace of mind after the wondering ; the main character stands patiently and follows the evolution of the story . I believe in this film . It meets its purpose ; it brings together people . It explains how life works ; politics and freedom don't go together . Politics and creation are two opposite meanings . A touch of soft and caring moment can be found anywhere . I am certain that each time I'll watch this film , I'll discover something new . Suggestion : don't bother tagging this film , it's free . It has no industrial signature . I'd like to enjoy a cup of çay next time I'll watch it .
