Guner Sernikli is a government official who, with his wife and their wheelchair bound daughter, has been assigned as the head librarian to this isolated province, virtually an exile since there is no library in the village. The family is warmly welcome, but these are the years of political anarchy and leftist/rightist clashes in big cities and the youth of the village inevitably follow the tides. They arrive in Vizontele, just as the situation is becoming really absurd. Guner brings wisdom; his daughter Tuba brings beauty, innocence and love. Some like the Mayor, Nazmi Dogan and crazy Emin appreciate these things but they are in the minority and confusion continues to reign. The story is based on the memories of writer-director Yılmaz Erdoğan of the last summer of his childhood in Hakkâri, Turkey in 1980.

The movie never comes close to justifying its 150 minute run time to me. Has some beautiful landscapes and general photography, but never comes together for me cinematically.

Although excellent points are made, it is hard to see most graffiti as anything more than destruction of public property. Check the documentary out and decide for yourself.

A porn movie without porn (done by the Berlin porn company Cazzo!), a story of love in an unrealistic prison, citations of Haynes' Poison and Genet's Un chant d'amour, hilarious elements of trash. This could have been a great idea ... Be glad if you don't understand German - the actors speak as if reading their text out of schoolbooks. True, this is so in some early Fassbinder films, too - but I really don't think it was intentional here. 2 stars for true love.

This was a gruesome movie but not a feel good storyline. I didn't feel patriotic but rather felt the violence of humans against each other. But through it all, it shows that not all Muslims are evil but rather compassionate and would do anything to protect one man. Overall it had a great cast with a good script. I felt I was watching Black Hawk Down meets Friday Night Lights.
