I lived in Turkey when Mahsun Kirmizigul was a folk(arabesk) singer
then I moved away...
I'm a rock/hip hop woman, I never paid much attention to him; always thought his kind of music was "beneath me". How elitist, how inconsiderate of me!
I moved back to Turkey 2 months ago from US and I watched "Gunesi Gordum" today...
Mahsun Kirmizigul won my respect, my admiration today...
Gunesi Gordum is an amazing movie. Every scene in the movie, every actor is spot on. It touches extremely sensitive subjects in Turkey and comes out a winner.
This movie makes you cry for the terrorists' family AND for the soldier that died defending his country. A son is a son. That's what this movie shows you without politicizing it.
It makes you see the pain of the homophobic brother facing the transvestite brother.
It makes you see how "privileged" you are while a big part of your country / world is just trying to HOLD ON....
Thank you Mahsun for this movie. I really hope you get the recognition you deserve.
