Storyline

Turkey's northwest has suffered a devastating earthquake on August 17th, 1999. The government is in need of lots of money to compensate the cost of recovering from this catastrophe. So they decide to pass a new, temporary law, which suggests that every man of Turkish citizenship over a certain age can now pay some certain amount of money to the government of Turkey, and in return for that, complete his military service in 28 days instead of the regular 18 months. Many people want to take advantage of that, including famous singers and businessmen, and they're all sent to the same army base to carry out their 28-day-long military service. One of them is a young man who has lost his home and his entire family in the earthquake, thus being allowed to join the 28-day crew without paying anything. Obviously, he's much different from anyone else around him, by all means. But he's not the only different one. There are many interesting and almost strange people there, one of whom cannot even ...

Big step for Turkish cinema
13 May 2003 | by rosepullerSee all my reviews

M. Altioklar has created a film which consists either messages and quality screen plays. As we know Turkish cinema doesn't improve that new era directors such as M.Altioklar. He tried to create some different things. But two big mistake has taken my attention when I watched the film. The first was that new style was directly American style. It sounds really ridiculous when you use American style in a Turkish army subjected film. The other mistake was the mounting cuts of the film. They were so clearly noticed during the film. I am also admired by the beauty of Pelin Batu. She was looking so innocent. M. Altioklar is a very lucky person for me.
