Storyline

Three years ago, in real-life, Hama Ali, a charismatic actor from Iraq famous locally for his performance as Iraq's version of Superman, met Ayca on a film-set. He and Ayca, a fiery actress from Turkey, had a passionate love affair before returning to their respective homes. From his Kurdish village, Hama Ali sends Ayca video love letters which he has filmed on his handycam. She watches them from her sofa in Istanbul, with her cat for company. The video love letters capture the hellish violence engulfing Iraq, the goats and uncles populating his rural area, and also his tender affection towards her. Feeling suffocated by her own city and angered by the indifference towards the war that surrounds her, Ayca decides to make the journey eastwards to Iraq to be reunited with her lover. GITMEK, a dramatic feature film, is based on the true story of Ayca's departure from Istanbul and her extraordinary journey to the Iraqi border. At a time when many people were fleeing from East to West in ... Written by Anonymous

love is found in a movie than another one is made about it...
1 December 2008 | by esvancSee all my reviews

Documentarist Huseyin Karabey's first movie. The movie tells the true story about Ayça Damgaci's road trip, from Istanbul to Northern Iraq to see/visit her boyfriend.

Ayça is a Turkish actress in her 30s, living in Istanbul. She meets Hama Ali Khan (a famous Kurdish actor in 50s) during a production of a movie. They fall in love immediately. After the movie is completed, unfortunately they are separated; Hama Ali turns back to Norhern Iraq, and Ayça goes back to Istanbul. However their love continues via letters. Hama Ali sends Ayça very funny video letters.

The war is severe and Ayça loses communication with him. So she goes crazy and plans a road trip to see and visit her love. Despite everyone's, this trip was a reverse one, from Istanbul to Suleymaniye to the center of war. When she arrives to the Turkey-Iraq border, she learns that the border is closed. So they decide to meet in another location, Umriye - Iran.

I am very impressed of Ayca's brave trip and also her passionate love for Ali. She listens to her heart even if that means risking her life. Furthermore, the movie gives you the chance to observe the circumstances of local people in the East of Turkey and all along the way to Umriye.
