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,...

waste of money and time
21 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

son mektup is a poorly directed movie. the script feels like it's written sloppy. the acting is another weakness of the movie. religious words and shouting is not enough giving the feeling of a battle which is won under very difficult circumstances.

i hardly endured till the end of it. i don't think i will ever remember son mektup a couple of weeks later.

plus, the movie is allegedly funded by an initiative that has the purpose of distorting the actual battle of gallipoli according to their political perspective. i think historical movies should be fair to their own realities.

not recommended.
