Cabbar, a destitute carriage driver from Adana, leads a life of misery, struggling to make ends meet for his wife, ageing mother and five children. He invests all his hope in lottery tickets; only fortune never smiles on him. Cabbar is squeezed by his creditors, pushed around and humiliated. One of his horses dies; the creditors appropriate the other. In the end, his only way forward is to hunt for buried treasure under the directions of a hodja with powerful insight. And the second half of the film is given over to the search for the treasure. Yilmaz Güney depicts horrific poverty and despair in shockingly stark terms; a language hitherto unknown to Turkish cinema. But the starkness of his language does not prevent him reaching the kind of visual brilliance that can only be described as hair-raising. The portraits he sketches are so accomplished, the events he relates so moving, his critique of the emerging order so spot on and the 'cinema' he produces so powerful that it is impossible not to be thrown off-balance. It is equally hard to decide whether to feel disappointment or elation that this is merely a 'film'.

Yilmaz Güney writes, directs and performs in Hope. And he weaves a story of which he has first-hand experience.

  • Cabbar, karısı, yaşlı anası ve beş çocuğunu borç harç aldığı ve iki atın çektiği eski fayton ile geçindirme çabasındadır. Yaşamları, gecekondu da büyük bir yoksulluk içinde sürüp gitmektedir ve uçan kuşa borcu vardır. Tek umudu sürekli aldığı piyango biletleridir. Bir kazada, otomobilin çarptığı atlardan biri ölür. Yeni bir at almak için çalmadık kapı bırakmaz, evindeki bir kaç parça eşyayı da, satarak parayı ancak denkleştirdiğinde ise araba ve diğer atı, alacaklıları tarafından satılmıştır...Cabbar, baştan beri define aramak için baskı yapan hamal Hasan'ın zorlamasıyla, nefesi güçlü bir hacının da onayıyla, define aramaya başlar. Çılgıncasına UMUT giderek bir umutsuzluk dansına dönüşür.

    Customer Testimonials
    Customer TestimonialI just wanted to say THANK YOU for such wonderful customer service. I inquired about Ertug's "Hayatim" CD a little over a week ago with little hope I could actually own it. You responded in a timely fashion that you were putting it on your list and would email me once it was available. A friend of mine actually e-mailed me to tell me that it was listed on your site the night before I received your email. By the time your's came...I had already placed my order. :D Unknown to me was how quickly I would receive it. The website said 10 business days...and I was fine with that...since I was just happy to be able to actually own it. You cannot imagine how happy I was to have it a day and a half after I ordered it (the same thing happened with "Bounce"...I received it before you said you would have it in stock)!!! I have listened to both CD's (I also ordered a CD from Nev) prior to typing this..and they are fabulous.:)
    I worked in retail for 6 years and I prided myself on my customer I usually expect a lot. Your company has done VERY WELL in my eyes. I have already recommended your site to my friend (she also ordered "Hayatim" to be sent to Canada)and will be mentioning it to a Turkish relative living here...if he doesn't already know about you...and I am looking forward to my next order...once I figure out what that will be ;)
    Thanks again!
