reasonable adaptation
8 January 2011 | by openforumSee all my reviews

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. Abdullah tries to lead a pious life, but in a autocratic society, this makes him a suspect, his pious activities dissension. this situation is pretty similar to the life of the author of the book, hekimoglu ismail and the historic troubles many pious Turks have had.

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.
