What an outstanding movie!
4 September 2004 | by anger_gruntSee all my reviews

That's not only a movie they said, it's a kind of myth, a lifestyle, a paradox, a surreal garbage..It's just a must-see, never forget..CUNEYT ARKIN was really serious about this film or we thought so and as we see, they really tried to be serious but it's just IMPOSSIBLE!!

"DUNYAYI KURTARAN ADAM" has turned into an absurd comedy and we're so glad to see this about 37 times :)

NEVER FORGET, IT'S A MUST-SEE!

Find it from somewhere with subtitles. Without the dialogs, the voices..oh no it's necessary to understand them..

"...thirteenth tribe..our fathers' tribe..Then where is here on the earth?" (??!!) (HEY! Cuneyt is trying' to tell something to us!! :)
