Storyline

Set during the period of the Varlik Vergisi where many non-Muslims were forced to pay higher taxes, often in an arbitrary and unrealistic way. Around two thousand non-Muslims, who could not pay the amount demanded for the tax within the time-limit of thirty days, were arrested and sent to a forced labor camp in Askale in the Erzurum Province of eastern Turkey. Twenty-one of these laborers died there.

This movie is surely beyond everyone's expectations...
27 November 1999 | by tunaboyluSee all my reviews

A Great movie to see... A big tragedy of Non-Muslims to pay high rated taxes during the second world war in Istanbul. Its realistic and objective approach to Turkish history makes the movie privileged. Nicely drawn characters, big performances of actors. I advise everyone to see it. Surely the best Turkish movie of this year. A great work of Turkish female director. Its soundtrack is also incredible. I recommend everyone to see it.
