I watched the movie yesterday and thought on it for a while. Let me share my humble opinion on some aspects of the movie. The story was crafted to make it as tragic as possible by putting problems of people who were forced to migrate in the focus and spicing it with social adaptation. While trying to point some problems like terror and the social pressure, the choices were too far from each other. If the story was focusing only on the migrating family, it could have been much better. The gay issue didn't fit the whole movie at all and it looks like a patch trying to gain sympathy. So, for the plot, it is over exaggerated tragedy. Acting is good, especially the main characters did a pretty good job. I am afraid, I can't be that positive for the directing and technical aspects. The fighting scene was very clumsy. Overall camera usage was pathetic. This movie is an Oscar candidate by now. I don't think it has the slightest chance. Although the movie is quite good in some aspects, it is far far away from being a classic or what so ever...

In the southeast region of Turkey, the Altun family lives in a small mountainside village plagued by a 25-year war, making their daily life a hellish struggle. As the war continues to intensify, the family is forced to migrate west to the city of Istanbul. While Haydar and Isa Altun decide to stay in Turkey with their young children, Davut Altun and his family migrate north to Norway, enlisting the help of smugglers.

Watching this movie made me aware of all the sufferings the Kurdish people went through and how strong and tough they have to be in order to survive all this hardship.
In the mean time two thumbs up for this new Turkish government that finally took the initiative and recognized the problem and took the first step to bring peace to Turkey so the Turks and Kurds can live in peace. Turkey's resources must be used to improve people's lives and not to be used for more destruction.
Finally a big thank you for Mahsun Kirmizigul and everyone who helped to make this movie especially the beautiful children for this eye opening experience.
This movie was released when Erdogan was still accepted by the majority of Turkey and not considered the threat he is today. This being said, it's sad to see that everything that has been thematised in this movie is accurate and even worse almost 10 years later.
As someone who believes that there is no difference between ethnicities nor religion I find this movie eye-opening in so many positive (and emotional) ways.
I have seen reviews that have called this movie anti-Kurd, pro-gay, pro-Western, anti-Turkish and they all have in common that they 1. have not understood the movie 2. are full of hate 3. are the reason why Turkey is the way it is right now.
This movie showcases the beauty of Kurdish culture, with it flaws and scars. It showcases the incapability of the Turkish government to secure peace. But also that no matter how beautiful Turkey is, it still has a long way to go...
I have never listened to Mahsun Kirmiziguls music (don't think will do anytime soon) but I respect his film-art.
This movie is not easy to digest, but worth every second.
