Stunning debut performance from both actor and the actress, unorthodox love story, lively music and Istanbul... if you don't set your expectations over the clouds you'll definitely love this movie. I watched it in Turkish and every single sentence does perfectly make sense but I am not sure how good the subtitles are. The only negative comment I can make, is the lack of a surprising end due to the referral made by the protagonist in the 3/4 of the movie. The age difference between the heroin and the source of HIV disease can be pointed out without making it blindingly obvious. The emotional peak of the story is very well balanced and it is far above being poor. Despite the 'generous' clue, the final scene is still kept strong enough to make you cry. I would say give it a try, you won't regret.
