Can you change your fate..? Of course not... Mustafa Altıoklar clearly proves the dominance of our fate on our lives. The film especially reflects the lifestyles of a special group of people (gypsies) in Istanbul. For some, they are disgusting; for some, outlaws; but for me: reality! No one has been so courageous to show the realities of life as Metin Kaçar(author of the original story). The film has the life itself in it: love, hate, crime, mercy, faith, honor, blood and even prostitution! Another and maybe the most important factor that makes the film worth watching at least 10 times is excellent performance of Mustafa Uğurlu(Reis). If you feel ready to face the facts of life, leave your comfortable seats for a while and go deep into narrow and gloomy streets of Istanbul... Don't hesitate, you will find yourself...
