Amazing Movie
19 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Technically flawless, perfectly natural, and hilariously funny.

Writer&director Burak Aksak put an extraordinary performance, similar to his previous works like Leyla ile Mecnun and Ben de Özledim. The story is very natural and warmhearted. The change of people, cities, and life itself is portrayed in a both sentimental and amusing way.

Acting, directorial technique, screenplay and music score are on a very high level. The actors credit include both young and talented actors beside very experienced and master actors in Turkish Cinema.

As a person whose life mostly is based on dramatic events, this movie made me burst into tears with amazingly funny and extremely emotional scenes. I can definitely recommend to go and see this movie with ease, you won't regret.
