Too obvious flow of events should have been compensated with psychological depth in characters, too dramatic and over verbalized dialogs didn't sound convincing at all, even though Turgul's language is not up to date and too plastic at times , fair drama quality prevails as always, some very powerful scenes, despite the unnecessary length of scenes performances of all actors will make it worth watching Director of photography did a very good job! sound editing is not extra ordinary but delivers the needed quality. Funniest Turkish stand-up comedian , cartoonist, director Cem Yilmaz once again stretching as an artist and totally rocking his 'not' funny but troubled personality of Idris
i strongly advice Tugrul's true master piece...a milestone of Turkish cinema 'Eskiya' (1996 ) with his favorite actor Sener Sen
