dark humor about turkish coup in 1980
3 May 2020 | by cmatcekenSee all my reviews

Fascinating story including many references to capitalism and military coup. Cezmi Baskin acts marvellous and effects the audience deeply. Özgü Namal and Umut Kurt also acts in this film and they did a great job.There hasnt been many films about turkish recent past, because authoritarianism was dominating in 80's. i think there should be a little more humor rather than the drama. if the director provide it then this film would be a milestone in turkish cinema. However it's still a must see show for me.
