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 »

A Masterpiece Which Tells the Story of the Ongoing Struggle
I was born in the infamous year 1984, which is the name of the Orwell's book that tells us about the facism at its prime. In turn, a bitter coincidence brought us the present day where most of the human values are getting erased from the existance, primarily in countries like us, but generally in everywhere. So oh, you tell me is this movie important for me.
Iftarlik Gazoz is a movie which tells our story from the heart. This is at its core is Turkey with struggles between the right wing that always seeks power and status quo and the left wing (most of it except radicalists) seeks solutions such as education to lift the country to an upper level. I for one who loves political stand points so if you are one of us you'll most definately love this.
Eventhough the main plot is the struggle between the leftist and rightists, the movie revolves around the young boy who observes and experiences the world from his own mind resolutions. That brings us to the fact that the country, Turkey once a very naive and peaceful place in which people were very friendly to each other despite the differences. Once upon a time a master was really a half-father and before caring about her/his profit, she/he was caring her/his apprantice, mostly for the fact that she/he was a child at that time. People might not be very well educated, but they had compassion and morale values. Even religion was not so religilous as much as our time.
This movie has novelty even if it tells a story which belongs to the old Turkey. Its novelty is in its language, music, acting and sincerity. One of the best movies alongside with Eskiya, Babam ve Oglum and Propaganda. It left my wife and me crying loudly for minutes after it ends. It surely is a must watch.
