One of the best so far...
11 January 2011 | by kafandiyevSee all my reviews

This serial is a new breath for Turkish television...

On the first glance there might be some apparent cliché episodes but the story goes deeper and deeper... It may not have the best TV serial scenario but the perfect cast what makes you stick to the screen on behalf outstanding and realistic performances.

I'd like to mention especially about Mete (Aras Bulut İynemli). I bet he'll be a very famous and successful actor in the future. The way he acts makes me have shivers... Everybody performs very very well and it's more than I expected... But I would not pass without mentioning little Osman (Emir Berke Zincidi)... He is only 6 years old... Actually whole story is told through his eyes in 1960's Istanbul... So smart and very very very lovely...

The background music picked up very successfully...

Overall this TV serial deserves watching... And it seems that new stars are about to be born...

Congratulations to producers, director and most of all the cast...
