On a misty morning, an old bus leaves Batum to go to Istanbul. As the bus stops at various places on the way, Russian women of all ages and professions, each with a unique tale, board. In this bus full of women, there are three Turkish men. Three brothers who have come together after many years to carry their father's last wish... The eldest, Necati Bey (Ugur Yucel) views life through his father's eyes, Hasan (Cem Davran) is a sailor, the conqueror of open seas and women's hearts. The youngest, Mehmet (Ozan Guven) grew up with their mother in Germany and has much to learn about his brothers, life, and love. All these different characters and their outlooks on life intertwine. Passions flare and preconceptions are shattered as the disparate collection of passengers embark, at the same time, on a personal journey of discovery. A chain of irreversible events lead to heartbreak, tragedy, and enlightenment. It is a journey on a bus full of joy, sadness, love, and life itself.Written by
Kemal Sunal was to play Necati but following his sudden death prior to the shooting, Ugur Yücel was brought in to play that character. See more »
The Turkish - Russian Connection
This film was surprisingly good after seeing at least 5 Turkish movies during the last week! The movie is based on a very realistic story and all players act in a very professional way. This is something I was missing in other Turkish movies that I recently watched. All players seem to be chosen from ordinary types from Turks are Russians, though some of them are really professionals. The director Ozgentürk is well-known with some other good films in Turkey and he seems to manage to make a nice composition from both cultures. The movie is rather long, which is almost 2 h, but you will love to follow every detail. Well done and congrats to all cast!
