Storyline

Ali Osman is living a quiet life after years of struggle, and tears. And he is slowly slipping into dementia. He made his peace with the horrible life he had and waiting for his final day to come. He then learns a long kept secret about a rebel boy whom happens to be his son. The boy is targeted by an insane mobster over a pretty singer girl. After a bloody firefight in a bar where she performs, the boy and the girl takes refuge in Ali Osman's life. Now Ali Osman is at a junction; will he break his vow of peace and take the matter into his hands or will he let dementia make him forget about everything? Written by Verminaard

Finally, a Turkish cinema exists!
17 December 2007 | by hbarbarossaSee all my reviews

I proclaim that, from the day this film was released on, Turkish cinema exists! Monumental acting (Kenan İmirzalıoğlu, first time in his decade old career, is an actor in this one, and perfectly so), consistent storyline with all taboos hitherto nigh untouchable (corrupt Police, state relations of organized crime, torture and humiliation in prison and under custody etc.) turned upside down in a gentle and natural way not over-pressing things in a fist waving manner, a very well done final scene in which you swing between tears and laughter and overall bright regie... No Shakespearean heroes/villains cliché of Turkish films/TV; crafty and in depth character building and realization with an antagonist whom you almost pity.

Especially a gem if you wish to hear the Istanbul dialect of Turkish, which is mostly fading into memories with the older generations, spoken with character and attire.

Most recommended. (Heavy swearing and mild sexuality warning)
