Athena Gökhan: Your love is a tiger cub lying in the depths of my heart, madam. It plays with my heart. It chases it like a ball of yarn. Because what we call love is really a monster that destroys everything in its path. A beast that can be resisted neither by my pride nor by the dungeon that holds my heartcaptive.

very smart comedy... !
19 April 2005 | by floransalijakondSee all my reviews

Very good script (Levent Kazak) . very clever story . The idea is brilliant. very good acting, good production and direction of Abdullah Oguz, music is good, but not satisfying.

Shooting black(sh) humor is not a easy thing to do in Turkey, but finally they did it. Although its a dark film, funny, its also very charming.

Turkish films are getting better every day. Problem of the industry is not be able to reach international market, O Simdi Mahkum may not be one of them .

I must admit that film was little long. but still, it was new.
