Yilmaz Güney was in prison when the film was made. He wrote a detailed screenplay and acted out some scenes in his jail cell and Serif Gören directed the film according to his strict instructions. See more »
Thank Yilmaz Guney and Serif Goren for doing such a tremendous movie.Actings are excellent.This movie is the proof of the possibility to make great films with limited financial resources.Tarik Akan gives a perfect performance.The most I liked in the movie is the hesitation of Seyit Ali to leave Zine alone on the mount.Yol is a very well acted, edited, and directed movie.Of course it would be a great fault to forget the screen written by Yilmaz Guney.Thank people who gives us the opportunity to see "Yol" .
