Trivia

When Arif phones his friend through his cellular after being abducted, his friend's children are playing the video game "Space Invaders". See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Arif: [In English] Speaking English? I live in English. It's not only a language to me, it's totally best way of expressing my own. You know, sometimes I'm dreaming of a world, all people understand each other perfectly. Yes, I have a dream. Imagine all the people dancing and touching each other, communicate in a joyful harmony.
Arif: [In Turkish] Son, don't look at me like a cow, go get some tea!

Commandant Logar, an object is approaching...
20 November 2012 | by GreekguySee all my reviews

I have inflicted this film on every house guest for the last two years. Why have I done this? First, because I am exceptionally cruel. Really, that's true. But second, I have done this because it is a very clever film from an unlikely source. How many Turkish films have you seen lately? Okay,"Once Upon a Time in Anatolia" should be a must-see for everyone, and you might have stretched to "Iklimer" or "Three Monkeys", but after that? After that is "G.O.R.A." This film is strangely unappreciated. As I tell all those who fall within my grasp, this celluloid baby is the best Turkish sci-fi comedy ever made. Of course, they retort: how many Turkish sci-fi comedies are there? But that's not the point. Instead, you should prepare yourself for an onslaught of charm from the very talented comedian Cem Yilmaz, who also wrote the film. (Which is probably why he gets to kiss the stunning Ozge Ozberk.) No, it's not perfect- there are a few too many moments of physical comedy with Ozkan Ugur, one fart joke too many with Rasim Oztekin, but overall, it's a great antidote for those who don't expect smart comedy from outside the traditional powerhouses of the international film circuit. And for those of you who don't know - the fourth element is not wood.
