*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The award-winning Ortalama 40 çöp (Avearage 40 matches) is the story of a package of matches. This package of matches come to life and come out of the box they are entrapped in. All they want is to satisfy their desire to smoke a cigarette. They must somehow feel that their satisfaction will also be their end but they just don't give up. By pushing each other, the get closer to a cigarette which is placed on an ashtray. Two of them try to catch fire by pushing their nose to each other. When they can't succeed, they realize one of them lagged behind. They go back and use the one straggling one to catch fire and then they smoke the cigarette until they themselves are just burned up too.If you like philosophical, though-provoking existential stuff you should consider watching this.The length is shorter than 3 minutes. Give it a try.
