Sociological allegory
17 January 2021 | by Film-gourmetSee all my reviews

1970s were intense year for Turkey. Political violence were escalating and class differences were getting more and more sharper. Within the upper class: justice, military, medicine, etc. were putting the pressure on low class (in this movie, the doorman). This movie is a metaphorical perspective to this age.

Is this movie fun? Well, it is your average Kemal Sunal comedy.
