A true cultural drama
10 October 2008 | by gypsy-73See all my reviews

I just finished watching this film, and I'm absolutely touched.... The message is clear and very effective....

I loved everything about it... Cultural diversity, horrible truth about senior homes, conflict between good and evil... I'm more impressed by Mahsun Kirmizigul who wrote and directed it than any experienced director... The cast is amazing...Acting is very powerful... They make you feel the characters...

It's become one of my favorites... When you watch it, I suggest, you should bring some tissues... Oh, and enjoy the beautiful Turkish music in certain scenes....
