This movie is definitely the best Turkish movie, and one of the best I've ever seen. Makes you really feel the defeat of old-school man who is one of the last bearers of honor, decency and humanity, against the "emerging markets" people. A very sad story is told in a comedy manner. It's a universal story, not only for Turks, but for everybody.
Muhsin Bey (Sener Sen) is a music producer who actually ran out of business, but still keeping to exist in business, occupying a table in a Turkish cafe as him last place of business. At early 80s arabesk music has its peak in Turkey, where Muhsin strongly resists to produce any arabesk albums. He would make only quality Turk and folk music. He is the only one regularly visiting an old lady who was once a great singer. One day, a guy named Ali Nazik comes from the country, wanting to be a famous singer. Whatever the circumstances are, Muhsin would invest only in quality music.
