I am totally won over by this wonderful film. The two lead actors are so special - what a chemistry there is between them (I also fell for them in Kordugum TV series until the writers did their worst!). The writing arc hit the spot. We are in the present, prosaically at the start, then slowly the layers of back-story are revealed. Is Turkish cinematography noticeably one of its great strengths? The TV series above I viewed after this masterful production seems to confirm that.
One issue I would take up with one of the reviewers, is the opinion that 'coincidences' were contrived; I don't agree. It could be expected that that ending sequence would quite logically happen. Normal? - not contrived soapiness!
No, I haven't seen the Korean version. I would suggest that some of 'boxer' scenes in mid-film are rather unpleasant, although integral and of kay importance. Eyes shut for me!
