With its lack of integrity and coherence; and an explicit inability to deepen the stories and bad acting except some actors, I think a user rating close to 8 is very very unrealistic. The director plays the smart by attempting to link five stories, but the links are very simplistic. Unable to provide a realistic picture of the social life in Turkey. It seems that rather than the content and good acting, the director gave too much emphasis upon the sensational "popularity" of the actors, each of which is very well known by Turkish public. This intention of making these "famous" faces to be seen in the movie seems to dominate the content and artistic concerns. My vote is 5 out of 10
