It is a great childhood story which is directed really good by one of the greatest Turkish directors(unfortunately there are not too many). When you start watching the movie,it seems like it is a little bit shallow in the way of showing a helpless poor community in the terrible conditions of World War 2. But after 15 minutes you understand that there is something special in the film. Probably it is about the reality in the story and characters. In reality, everything becomes so simple. Also directing becomes simple. Acting becomes simple. But inside this simplicity, sometimes greatness becomes simple. And this movie earns this greatness. Maybe it is not the very perfect movie ever made but it is one of the best movies which has been ever made in Turkish cinema.
