Should we focus on western culture for reviewing a Turkish film?
I will not say that this film is fantastic, since many parts of it are very boring and exaggerated. In the meantime, this is the general culture of Turkish people to exaggerate dramas. OK, if you evaluate this film with the general trend of Western culture, you may not understand why people like this kind of cinema. I would not give critic to them because they are lost in different cultures and cannot imagine one second that they don't really understand Turkish culture. Some scenes are very funny and I would recommend you to see it at the cinema. Don't trust main other reviews. I even suspect them to not have seen the film!!
