Hacivat and Karagöz is a comedy team in Turkish culture.They are usually known as all Turkish people.They acted during the first years of Ottoman Empire.Despite having many fans they were also criticizing the system of state and governors.So they were punished and killed by government.
And the movie.Ezel Akay and Levent Kazak really created a good studio for this film in my opinion.Studio looks realistic and city life looks so dynamic.Although the film is not claiming to become a comedy ,many people were waiting to laugh.This looks impossible.At least for me.All the actors made a good job.Especially Haluk Bilginer performs his best.Costumes are also fine but movie's language may be a bit hard for young people.
In short Hacivat and Karagöz Neden Öldürüldü is not a must seen film.But it is worth every penny you give and especially second 1/2 of movie is better.You can go see this movie and learn why they died?Why people who criticizes system die?
