Storyline

This is a story of the great Turkish poet Nâzim Hikmet, the poet of struggle and combat, the poet of passion and love. Having adopted communism as his life philosophy, he reflects his thinking in his art, and is continuously chased by the police as a result. Every move he makes, every word he writes or says is under the close scrutiny of the state. During World War II, the poet Nâzim Hikmet is arrested once more because of his communist links. This time the military court sentences him to 28 years in jail. In the course of his long imprisonment, he transforms the prison into a school and workshop, encouraging his fellow inmates to use their time productively. Throughout these dark years he manages to sustain his courage and passion by creating immortal works, imagining a world with freedom of thought. Written by omayra73@yahoo.com

great poet, mediocre movie.
12 March 2007 | by bosizmSee all my reviews

The directing and the scenario of this movie is horrible. I do not think that this product can be classified as a movie: This movie consists many stories that are unconnected. There is no flow of story and no suspense. All characters are caricatures. We do not even get to know Nazim Hikmet, thanks to the poor script.

The only good thing is the selection of Yetkin as the main character. He does everything to save the movie. His acting is superb despite the script limitations. However, the supporting cast is horrible (1970's mediocre Turkish movies horrible).

There are a lot of good directors in the contemporary Turkish cinema and I hope that one day we can watch a good movie about Nazim Hikmet.
