In early 1970s, Adem is a boy living in an Aegean village with his family. He just finished the primary school and he wants to work while he's on summer holiday. He gets permission from his family to work for a soda pop seller named Ciber Kemal. But the Ramadan has just came and Adem wants to do his fast while he's working. But he starts seeing hallucinations because of the hot summer day. It seems it's going to be the longest day of Adem.
The World Cup Final game in which West Germany played against Nederlands was on 7 July 1974. In the movie it was shown as the final game was playing on a day in Ramadan (fasting month). But in 1974 Ramadan was between 18th September and 17th November. That means it was not possible to watch the game in Ramadan in 1974. See more »
When I was watching the movie, I had a lot of thoughts, critics, and feelings. I thought the part on the religious advises and the speech parts that the master of Adem (Cibali Kemal) was quite long. But this can be due to my interests, my perspective, some may find them all on right dosage. So this is a subjective opinion. I loved acting of Adem, Hasan, mother and father of Adem, Imam (Macit Koper) also other children. I remembered my childhood and the horrors, concerns I had due to being naive and lacking knowledge. For Cem Yılmaz's acting, unfortunately Cem Yılmaz has the disadvantage of being famous as a comedian and I could not feel the sincerity of his role a lot. Still he caught some details well, reflected the physical condition of the role very good (this is also the success of the director). When he spoke, I felt like a childish speak rather than an Aegean accent (the other actors had this accent really good). But his body acting was very good. Overall, I liked the movie, I felt the sincerity, good will, and hard work (on both the plot and the film making). The animated parts were also good. After the movie I have the urge to investigate more about some parts, ask more on those times to my parents (who are Aegean descents). I can watch this movie many times, try to catch some of the sayings, conversations. Thanks to everyone who had this hard work and dedication, we need such good movies in Turkey.
