Nejat seems disapproving about his widower father Ali's choice of prostitute Yeter for a live-in girlfriend. But he grows fond of her when he discovers she sends money home to Turkey for her daughter's university studies. Yeter's sudden death distances father and son. Nejat travels to Istanbul to search for Yeter's daughter Ayten. Political activist Ayten has fled the Turkish police and is already in Germany. She is befriended by a young woman, Lotte, who invites rebellious Ayten to stay in her home, a gesture not particularly pleasing to her conservative mother Susanne. When Ayten is arrested and her asylum plea is denied, she is deported and imprisoned in Turkey. Lotte travels to Turkey,where she gets caught up in the seemingly hopeless situation of freeing Ayten.

Jerome K (es) wrote: although the movie is less than an hour and half, it feels like so much longer (in a good way). you really get to know the two main characters in this love story. the fact that it's a gay romance has very little impact on the story. one of the better love stories i've seen in awhile.

Brian C (es) wrote: Hilarious western comedy by Seth MacFarlane. An all star cast lead this barrage of dirty jokes, zany deaths, and cowboys and Indians. There is a lot of fun to be had.Many jokes fell flat, but some were just so well played...especially the Back to the Future joke and Django Unchained jokes, and Liam Neeson as the evil Clinch!In the end, this is a love story about a man losing the women he thought he loved, and moving on. Great characters, and beautifully shot.

I watched this movie manly because it was made in Montenegro and I am familiar with most of the places there... but I can tell you that it's not worth spending more than five minutes watching it - at the beginning... if you like naked girls scenes (actually even those girls were not very classy). Having cravings for a movie with gaping holes in a plot, soft porn, stupidity, old Eastern European cars, worst of the European, American and Balkan actors, lots of violence and blood - this is your film!

Cigs J (ca) wrote: A cold war drama mainly based around 1961 and 1991. It flips back and forth constantly so it is like a jigsaw puzzle to follow. A beautiful spy is told to let herself be seduced by a handsome high ranking foreign officer in the Russian foreign office. It goes according to plan but she falls in love with him after marrying. She persuades him to defect to the West on the assurance that she will follow. But she never turns up. So the current manifestation of him (Charles Dance) has spent his life wondering what happened to her. His niece decides to go to Russia to find out and the story unfolds. It is a strangely stilted film, it feels like the actors are not quite connected to the storyline so you do not buy in to the characters

I love Newsies as an adult for its throwback style, the political themes, and the dense lyrics...and for all the other stuff as well. A cult classic that should actually just be a classic.
