This film is REALISTIC. One of the most realistic films ever made in the history so dive in to the Ocean of Reality dive into this unkind woman's naked corpse! and have fun, tragedies are always funny who cares Listen to The ISTANBUL this is the last warning and have no hope no harm yeah I am living in here and maybe you don't know but the center is here if the center is ill, if the history and time and souls are poisoned the new days is all full of unhappiness for mankind. You can be from London or New York or Cape town you can thought that Istanbul is away and have nothing to do with you oh poor mankind just watch you will see that you are living here.
