I don't have words for this movie, the atmosphere of this city, the souls tha live there and the music: too far beautiful to put into simple words. Just watch it
I love Istanbul

Surprising, amazing, intimate. This film is remarkable not only because of the inner beauty of its quest, but because of the detailed and polished level of its cinematography. Bravo.
this film made me nostalgic for a city i've never been to
This is what i'm talking about! The last bit with Sezen Aksu and the photomontage had the right amount of nostalgia and sentimentality to make a little tear drop.
Extraordinary. Quite likely the most _musical_ music documentaries I've ever seen. And, in its admirably non-linear way, very educational. (The soundtrack album is downloading from iTunes as I write this).
