In the interview on the double-DVD special edition of the film, Cem Yilmaz explains that the title of the film is not an abbreviation but that he was inspired from the name of a kind of popular Turkish sandwich made with meatballs or sausage (and hence the reference to the "gorali" (meaning with gora but also sounds like ''from Gora'' in Turkish) sandwich ordered by the unbelieving UFO magazine editor at the end of the film).

The number that Arif dials in jail on the ship doesn't match to the number that appears on the LCD screen, since there were a change in the main sponsors of the film. Both sponsors were GSM Operators. But at the filming sequence Telsim was the sponsor, however at the post production sequence it was Avea. See more »

Arif is a typical Turkish bloke selling carpets to tourists in Western Turkey. He is also obsessed with creating fake pictures of UFOs. Then he gets abducted by aliens from the GORA planet. After all there is no rule that says aliens can only abduct people from the USA. Nor is there a rule that says that only Americans can make contact with extra-terrestrial life forms. So what happens if aliens abduct a Turkish carpet seller ?
Basically, GORA is a good piss take of the more popular sci-fi movies such as Starwars and Matrix. And that's fine with me, because I believe both Starwars (feel the Farce) and Matrix (I know Kung Fu) are extremely overrated movies. The sense of humour in GORA is Turkish. That is neither a praise nor an insult. It is just Turkish. The subtitles don't help either. For some reason Turkish movie producers hire awful translators who sometimes even mix German with English. Translation between languages that are as different from each other as Turkish and English requires slightly more than a word-by-word correspondence. I hereby offer my services free of charge. Just ask. Had the subtitles been any better the movie could have achieved some international recognition as a comedy movie. Turkish speakers should definitely watch this movie. They'll have a good laugh. Non-Turks should give it a try.
