“Comedy of the absurd has rarely felt so strangely real”, Screendaily
“With his third film, Turkish director Mahmut Fazıl Coşkun announces himself as a major film talent.” Cineuropa
“The incongruously intimate story of a 1963 Turkish army coup attempt allows Mahmut Fazıl Coşkun the scope to take his mordant wit to new heights in his deadly serious yet deeply sardonic third feature”, Variety
