User Reviews

great fun and production for Turkey, don't miss
4 April 2002 | by alpertokuSee all my reviews

Yilmaz Erdogan, I think, improves his career with this film. His colleagues, Cem Yilmaz, Demet Akbag act as they are Oscar awarded actors. I am very proud of this great Turkish movie. I think this means that Turkish cinema is in great progress.
