| Exploiting a Need
Prisons, governments, authorities needs criticizing. The place where the film starts is awesome. But when it comes going down the road, it looks weird. It seems exploiting the political situation. At that time, the military government was bad. Expressing it is a service to humanity. However, creating hostility from it, is wrong as military authority. Each scene embodies a needling. For example, children are beaten, behind, the wife has been cheating on her husband, and they're sent to death sentence. Showing the Atatürk's words: Republic will glorify you. Immediately some kiddings about god, the nation and morality. They can do it all. All criticism is vital for living. Although, when you add them all together, it's not doing anything but hostility. Attacking something with art is ugly as crime. I wish, film told the story of teens struggle to survive under hideous conditions at prison, as synopsis said.
