One of the best Turkish movies!
13 February 2002 | by serdarknessSee all my reviews

This movie is among the best Turkish movies ever made. Mehmet Aslantug gives a brilliant performance as a curious watchmaker. Ömer Kavur deserves applause both for his co-story writing and direction. I highly recommend this movie to every movie lover.
