Best movie, I've ever seen!
17 April 2007 | by hayalperestSee all my reviews

I can't find word to explain the feelings while watching this movie... It is a bit musical, a bit movie; also combines tragedy, comedy and whatever other feelings are there... It also gives an idea about the power of dark forces over music sector in Turkey; and also the cheaters in it. Maybe; "Hope" and "Success" words can be a roof for summary of this story! Congragulations Ezel Akay!

If it is needed to tell about the techniques; really similar to Chicago maybe; but also original sounds and colors. I have to say for foreign watchers: All singers in the movie are real. They are star in Turkey; and most of them is as old as Turkish Pop Music comes to world. (For Ex: Erol Büyükburç is one of the first examples of Turkish Pop Singer) Not only pop music; many genre of songs are played in movie. (Really successful soundtracks!)
