Saw this in London, the first time I saw a Turkish movie, and bought the ticket by mistake (I actually went in to see The Village!). When I realized I was watching a subtitled Turkish movie, I was about to leave the cinema, but had fifteen minutes before the Village started so I stayed on.
I was expecting a cheesed up Bollywood movie, but I was simply blown away. I stayed till the end. I don't think I have ever been so moved by a movie - it captures the essence of human spirit on the same level as the greatest movies of the 20th century. My only regret is that this will forever be unrecognized in our world. This movie invariably deserves to be in the IMDb to 250 movies of all time, if not in the top 25.
