A feminine look on the effects of wars in a historical fantasy.
This film is a victim of a racist and smear campaign. The smear campaign was so successful that two mayors put a ban on this film! As for the film, I can say that as a comedy film it serves its genre quite well. The cast is great. The setting is unbelievably stunning. The music is great for Turkish music lovers. The script is quite balanced and hilarious at times. The acting is superb. There are some flaws in the script and the rhythm of the film but overall it was quite entertaining and satisfactory. I would give a well-deserved 7 over 10 to this film of Mahzun Kırmızıgül. The 3.7 given by the voters on IMDb is totally biased and unfair.
