Once heard Cem Yilmaz is starring I expected somewhat comedy, like GORA and Yahsi Bati, it was so though, until last ten percent. It suddenly turned into hard drama. I don't understand who the target audience are? Comedy lovers or drama addicts? Anyway, scenery, Aegean village, farmers, tobacco fields, spring, lulaby, open-air cinema were so nice. When compared with Ottoman period TV series scenery was far better, which are just composed of a bunch of Belgrade Forest and pompous costumes. But I felt like I was in the 1970's while watching it. Just a moment I thought the topic is just about a child's weird tides in Ramadan. In animation part, ant's "I'll die on my way" catchword was so cliché. I expected something more deep. Mosque scenes were unnecessarily long. Some players imitated pretty well Aegean sweet accent while others mucked up. Some latent messages were splattered through movie, especially on contrast with ordinary villagers and scholar boy, Hasan. Cibar Kemal resembles Iskender in Hokkabaz in many ways.
