Tekin's rating of the film The Thief

First time I saw this film in Ankara film festival in Turkey snd fell in love with the film. One of the all time best, the film is humorous but tragedy filled story from the young boy' eyes who accepts the mystery stranger his mom meet on the train as his adopted father until he takes his revenge for the latter being a scoundrel. Beautifully acted and directed, it is a pleasure to watch.
