you probably haven't seen this mishmash of languages
We fans of cult cinema know that Turkey made a number of action flicks in the 1970s. Several of these were ripoffs of movies from the US - there was a Turkish "Exorcist" and a Turkish "Young Frankenstein" - but they made some original movies. A really crazy one was "Karateci Kız", about a woman who seeks revenge on her father's killers. The copy that I saw made it even zanier: the opening credits were in French, the movie was dubbed in English, and had Danish subtitles (and the woman looked Danish!).
There's not much in the way of plot, but the truth is that these sorts of movies make life worth living. It surprises me that Quentin Tarantino hasn't made a tribute to Turkish action flicks. If he ever does, he'll probably have to cast Filiz Akın and Cüneyt Arkın (with Samuel L. Jackson around to say the word that rhymes with brother-sucker).
Anyway, this is a fun movie. You're sure to love it.
