Storyline

Pilot Captain Salih Ekrem is a young air officer and one of the first Ottoman pilots. He lost his wife during the birth of his little daughter, Gülmelek. In February 1915 with the first assaults of the British fleet, Salih Ekrem entrusts Gülmelek to her grandmother's care and leaves Istanbul to go to Gallipoli, flying on "one of the first planes". One day, while engaged in an air reconnaissance mission, Salih rushes to the aid of a group of Turkish medical personnel, among which is a young nurse by the name of Nihal, when they are attacked by two English planes. Although heavily injured during the skirmish, he manages to save a young boy named Fuat with the help of Nurse Nihal. An orphan, Fuat takes shelter under the wing of Nurse Nihal, Captain Dr. Ragip, Nurse Erika and the captain of the Nusrat, Captain Hakki. Seeing their own children reflected in the "Little Veteran" Fuat, everyone is doing their best to protect him. In the heat of the most violent and terrifying days of the war,...

Excellent movie
27 March 2015 | by ebrucakilSee all my reviews

i loved Son Mektup movie. It's so emotional movie. And certainly it has epic, dramatic scenes. Set during the Battle of Gallipoli in 1915. The story follows a young Turkish pilot and a nurse who together rescue and attempt to shelter a young orphan boy amidst the chaos of battle. Son Mektup has a great screenplay. And gorgeous scenes, excellent acting. Son Mektup is a major advance for Turkey. But i don't understand some people who manipulated Son Mektup. Other comments don't reflect the truth. And contain political views. And this is a huge mistake for movie reviews. Because this film is really great movie and don't contain political views. I highly recommend watching this film.
