this film was made during a time the Turkish cinema was in a major slump. however it was also the first of its kind. It tells the allegoric tale of Abdullah from the fictional town of minye in Egypt.

This helped in making it a financial success, more than the quality of the film itself. As it stands, the movie is hampered by overacting actors and clichés.
A remake by the current Turkish cinema based on a good screenplay and directed by one of the better current directors would not be unbecoming.
