Trivia

The names of the characters fit their personalities. Cenk means war, Nadir means rare and Alper means hero.

Ismail is also the name of the son of Prophet Ibrahim. In the Kur'an, Ibrahim asks Allah for a son and promises to sacrifice him. Just as he sacrifices Ismail, Allah sends Cebrail and tells him that this was a test and that he passed it. The father and son later built Kabe together. This hints to the character Ismail's relationship with authority in this film.

Beybaba is a name used by children when referring to their fathers. The word is composed of two words; "Bey" and "Baba". Baba means father, and bey is a word used while respectably referring to men in Turkish. See more »

Goofs

In one scene the characters talk about how many times they've watched the movies on the boat over again because there are only 10 of them. Later we see a collection of movies that is significantly more than 10 next to the TV. See more »

dark and humorous
28 January 2015 | by hakipekSee all my reviews

although it is too hard to provide humor and dark tones in a film at the same time without creating an unwatchable Kafkaesque comedy ( we have tones of very bad examples of Cohen brothers-like screenplays even coming from themselves) , brilliant screenplay with great directing and acting make it so easy to eyes. it takes you in a roller coaster of colorful characters who welcome you at the first 10 minutes and let you become one of them, eat, starve and thrill at the same time. director and writer Tolga Karacelik has vivid style and sense of humor that are all his own and he sets his benchmarks for his future titles in this movie. must see!
