Life that we scare to share...
20 July 2004 | by kayabaySee all my reviews

Sir Cocuklari is about the homeless children and drug addicts scattered around Istanbul like many metropolitan areas throughout the world. It is actually about the lives we all scare to share. With the participation of real life homeless people, it has a dramatic story that covers and describe all. The screenplay is somewhat built on coincidences and still has the amateur soul of the independent cinema, but the ordinary people and the dark sides of Istanbul are beautifully captured. As a co-production sponsored by many and especially Euro Images that bring out new tastes all through Europe, I advise all to watch Sir Cocuklari ( AKA: Children of Secret ). 9 out of 10.
