A sleepy desert village in southeast Turkey is thrown into turmoil in 1948 when the government puts up a barbed-wire "border" that cuts the town in two. Veteran director Sinan Çetin shoots this cruel, surreal tale as a soft-edged comedy focused on strong characters and conflict. Though story has few unexpected turns, it offers enough food for thought for a number of smaller fests. Top Turkish comedians Kemal Sunal and Metin Akpinar are aging bosom buddies whose son and daughter urgently want to get married. But Sunal's appointment as the new customs director destroys their friendship. Village doctor Akpinar and his family wake up one morning to find themselves on the wrong side of the border, living in an unspecified foreign country. This surreal situation is enforced with military logic by the self-important, dimwitted Sunal, puffing in his officer's uniform. The common-sense award goes to the women, Sunal's stubborn wife and Akpinar's fiery daughter.

Hi guys, I just received the first issue of my subscription to Popüler Tarih, and I'm amazed at how quickly it got here. I have never had a domestic US magazine subscription start so fast. As a result, I will be subscibing to several more magazines very shortly. Tulumba.com is great, and I've told all my friends about you guys. By the way, is there any possibility of adding newspaper subscriptions to your lineup? I can get Hürriyet at my local Borders bookstore, but some variety would be nice (Tercüman, Cumhuriyet, Sabah, Fanatik, falan). Keep up the great work!
