So good Yilmaz Güney movie
2 March 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

That's the first time I see a film from Turkey, at least I think so. And I already know that Yilmaz Güney is a great director from this country, if not the greatest. I have heard that all his life he struggled against tyranny, opression of all kinds. This film could be understood as a sort of image of the Kurde people fight against Turkish authorities. It is also a kind of western full of action and surrounded by terrific settings, with plenty of sequences of rocks rolling downhill from the top of the mountains. The gunshot sound effects look like those you hear in Spaghetti westerns.
