The original version of the Ömer segments included a sequence in which the plight of Turkey's Kurdish population is discussed, with the sequence prefaced with the location title 'Kurdistan'. The sensitivity surrounding this issue in Turkey was part of the reason the film was banned there for many years. These scenes were not restored to the 2017 'Full Version' release, nor are the included on the Korean-issued DVD of the film. See more »
PROBABLY BEST TURKISH FILM EVER MADE IN TURKISH CINEMA HISTORY
Yol has a very special place in Turkish cinema.It is a masterpiece in my opinion.What makes Yol different from other Turkish films.The most important reason is that it comes from its own culture.It doesn't try to imitate American films or some others.It has its own way.This is really very important in building a film.When Turkish directors catch this point like Yýlmaz Güney I believe very good Turkish films will exist in the future.
