Many talks about G.O.R.A. as the funniest Turkish movie however, as plot vise, shootings and dialogs "pardon" beats all.
First of all, the director is superb. He had put a lot in the movie, many so-called directors has a lot to learn from Mert Baykal. The script belongs the lead actor Ferhan Sensoy, who is one of the most intellectuals of Turkey. His plots and comedy is unmatched.
I suggest this movie to anyone Turkish and non-Turkish people to see how a country's legal system can be corrupted.
The story is one of the true stories of Turkey about its legal system faults. The acting and directing is superb. I have watched it three times in the same week and laughed each time.
