A tragedy
19 March 2010 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I simply hate people's aggression to this film.The rating of this film is the result of our ostrich like attitude to our past and people's hate to certain person.This is unacceptable.I partly agree that this film may not be that realistic but it teaches us an important lesson.Our country has suffered a lot from the military coup in 1980.Our past is filled with things that bother us but we still continue to ignore it.Without any doubt,this is a good film and if anybody wishes to know the truth about our country,this is a good lead.Another thing that should be emphasized is the beautiful performance of the leading actor and actresses.
