I'm so glad I didn't give up on Erdem after 'Oh, Moon'. This one is full of hilarious gags and one-liners, bitter-sweet conclusion and colourful Turkey. Very enjoyable but not empty! And unforgettable getaway from circumcision... Thank you, Reha.
My favorite film by a Turkish director.It's characters are peculiarly familiar, acting feels pretty natural and impressive.The film is funny but deep; it has a naive but brilliant sense of and outlook on life and humanity. The dialogue between a child and a middle aged woman in the film says it all: "Do dogs bite us because we have bones in our bodies?" "No, they bite us because we don't have a heart in our bodies.."
