| Funny Turkish movie with great views of the city of Istanbul. Very good acting!
Organize Isler revolves around a good-willed character, a gangster-to-be thief played by Yilmaz Erdogan who is one of the most talented actor/writer/director in Turkey. The plot is not too complicated, but the dialogs are very well written and you can giggle and laugh increasingly through the movie. Plus, it has really magnificent views, mostly from above, like you are flying above this cosmopolitan, colorful, intimate city. The rest of the cast is also very skilled, most of the one of the best in their league. One of the is Cem Yilmaz, the most famous comedy actor in Turkey, with a relatively small role in this one (has done a great job with it if you ask me). I really liked watching this movie, felt like cruising through a hilarious story! If you are from Turkey, you will have a good time watching Organize Isler. But I do not know if you can get the humor if you don't know Turkish. It probably depends on how good the translation is. Still, I think the movie has a lot of specifically Turkish jokes that you can only get if you are Turkish or if you have lived in Istanbul for a long time. Then again, if you don't get all the jokes, you will have a great look at a great city from a cheerful, sunny screen.
