Storyline

Yazi Tura (Toss Up) is the film of two stories taking place in 1999. Stories of two young men... One is "Ridvan the Devil", a young football player from Central Anatolia, Cappadocia / Goreme, and the "Cevher the Ghost", a young man who is living with his father in Istanbul. Both went to the army together, and fought in the Eastern Anatolia. Both had dreams and expectations for their civil lives back home. After their military service Ridvan goes back to his village with his right leg missing, the leg that he would score goals with, due to a mine explotion. Neither his fiancée nor his friends treat him the way before. What Ridvan has been through during the war actually brings him down with time. In the same mine explosion Cevher also lost his hearing ability of his right ear, but he is going to go through a greater change after he rescues his father from the wreckage of the Marmara Earthquake.

mile stone movie for Turkey
31 January 2006 | by gurcell3See all my reviews

Wonderful.I had never thought this movie could be so sarcastic before I watched it but when it ended I was in a shock like I was well beaten.The movie is about two soldiers got wounded in army one lost his leg and the other became deaf after a mine explosion.After coming back to their cities life would never be the same again for them.They will not be able to adopt their new lives.They will have to live their own tragedies and other people will not understand them.The movie is extraordinary has a very different plot and dramatic story from the beginning to end credits.The reason why I liked it so much is that it is a mile stone for Turkish cinema much more different than other Turkish movies.The movie has a style like requiem for a dream but more sarcastic than that.
