The movie is not about Tarzan but its about an average turkish guy who thinks he is tarzan. His name is Rifki and poeple in his neigbourhood call him Tarzan Rifki. He is kinda stupid and naive. He wants to find a true love and live with her in a forest. One day he sends an advertisement to a newspaper. Its a newspaper where single people send message to find new friends. He finds one and one day he wants to meet her. He mails her and tells the woman where they are going to meet each other. He say that he is going to carry a red colored small flower (rose?) in the pocket of his shirt. He goes to that place and starts waiting. In the same time, a mafia boss hires a famous killer since he wants him to kill someone for him. They tell the killer to go to a certain place and wait for them there. They also tell the killer that he should put a red flower in the pocket of his shirt, so he can recogniz him (they do it to make the things secure, you know like mission impossible stuff) whatever. The place where the killer waits is the same place as the place where our here (tarzan rifki) waits. Accidentally the mafia people think that tarzan rifki is the killer and they just take him to the boss. But somehow noone understands the problem. Tarzan thinks the boss is the father of his new girlfriend. And the boss thinks he is a killer. It takes too much time since they notice the problem. Pretty funny movie. A good example for turkish humor.
