Storyline

Xate is an ordinary woman from Midyat with eight children in tow. The only thing that sets her apart is her husband's job as Mayor of Midyat. Until, that is, an extraordinary day changes her life - and the lives of everyone else in Midyat. For the illiterate, uneducated Xate becomes Mayor of Midyat! While she takes on her mayoral duties much as she does those in her house, the infantile rivalry between her children in municipal matters leads to adventures that have the Midyat folk howling with laughter.

Great musics, good performance - well done
25 February 2013 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Film location, characters, film musics were just great. There were some scenes where you just don't find some jokes funny at all but overall,really enjoyed the scenario. Representation of the Kurdish culture, Kurdish music, the Assyrians, the Armenians, and the Yezidi cultures were just great samples of normalization of the mood against the differences in Turkey. Greatly done. This region has a lot of different ethnic and religious backgrounds, and of course there are many good endless stories, which could feed the movie sector for a very long time. Acknowledgment of the differences within Turkey, will bring bright future, without conflicts and war.
