When 6 changes to 9
16 December 2002 | by sliver-1See all my reviews

Something is too different tahn how it is seen. You can understand the real event only by going too deep, but you can face something you dislike.

An ordinary,lover class town in Istanbul and a murder affair happens. And than with the aid of 6 characters we enter into the event.

I think this is one of the most wonderful Turkish movies in last years. And this film has been sent for Oscar change from Turkey this year. I think everybody should see this film to understand real power of cinema without colofful scenes and special effects.
