enchantingly beautiful actress and scenery
1 February 2014 | by (sf, ca, usa) – See all my reviews

this lovely film moved me to post my first review. I usually prefer movies with lots of dialog. Turkish films generally don't have what I look for. Leaving the politics aside; I was spellbound by this character and the mountains were magnificent. This film was so moving that any criticisms I would have seem insignificant. The Kurdish cultural perspective was a nice refreshing point of view. The only movie I can think of to compare this to would maybe be "Into the wild." I would probably be happy to watch this actress doing just about anything. And the mountains of Turkey seem like a fairy-tale location. Thanks for letting me gush
