I would like to meet with people who are beyond the hill
It is an interesting movie that shows very well how Turkish people feel to live in this land. I think this is because of the education system, politicians and media in Turkey. They want us to have fears for "those people beyond the hill". They want us to hate "those people beyond the hill". They want us to kill "those people beyond the hill". Of course this is a generalization but it fits for a lot of people who lives in Turkey.
I don't agree with people who thinks that this movie is slow or boring. (If you want, you can always watch an action movie or something.) It helps you to think what is next, but you never know everything at the moment.
