The Synopsis for I Saw the Sun (2009) 720p

In the southeast region of Turkey, the Altun family lives in a small mountainside village plagued by a 25-year war, making their daily life a hellish struggle. As the war continues to intensify, the family is forced to migrate west to the city of Istanbul. While Haydar and Isa Altun decide to stay in Turkey with their young children, Davut Altun and his family migrate north to Norway, enlisting the help of smugglers. They eventually reach their destination and find work in a supermarket, but life as refugees proves relentless. Back in Istanbul, Haydar watches over the family as his wife undergoes an operation due to pregnancy complications. Their son makes friends with a group of transvestites, helping him to understand why he has felt different all of his life. While liberating, his newfound identity is seen as a disgrace to the rest of his family, leading him to flee from the abuse it produces.

The Reviews for I Saw the Sun (2009) 720p


An ordinary and boring movie with one good messageReviewed bybilinmeyenoseyVote: 3/10

About the movie: One of the messages of the movie which is the problem of Turks and Kurds is very useful and must be emphasized. Turks and Kurds are brothers and of the same team. Another message, which is the homosexuality doesn't have anything to do with the movie's general outline and I still can't understand, why it is there. Most probably in order to gain the Western audience's admiration. The funny part is about Norway. I don't know if the Norwegians somehow paid for the movie but there couldn't be any better propaganda for the country. I also live in Europe and we all know that Norway is not paradise and has other (maybe not financial or material issues but definitely social and pertaining to the Norwegian behaviour to foreigners) problems.

About its Oscar-candidacy: Well the West does like topics like homosexuality, political instabilities in a non-Western country (Oscar is quite political sometimes) and especially the well-known sun-symbolism. I don't know if Mahsun Kirmizigul also became part of the so-called Hollywood-initiation, but it can hardly be a coincidence that the sun is so emphasized in the movie. I don't really believe that it is going to get the prize.

Favourite Turkish MovieReviewed byyaseminaymazVote: 10/10

This movie was released when Erdogan was still accepted by the majority of Turkey and not considered the threat he is today. This being said, it's sad to see that everything that has been thematised in this movie is accurate and even worse almost 10 years later.

As someone who believes that there is no difference between ethnicities nor religion I find this movie eye-opening in so many positive (and emotional) ways.

I have seen reviews that have called this movie anti-Kurd, pro-gay, pro-Western, anti-Turkish and they all have in common that they 1. have not understood the movie 2. are full of hate 3. are the reason why Turkey is the way it is right now.

This movie showcases the beauty of Kurdish culture, with it flaws and scars. It showcases the incapability of the Turkish government to secure peace. But also that no matter how beautiful Turkey is, it still has a long way to go...

I have never listened to Mahsun Kirmiziguls music (don't think will do anytime soon) but I respect his film-art.

This movie is not easy to digest, but worth every second.

War in the CityReviewed bykosmaspVote: 6/10

There is no war in a city here, it's during unrest let's call it. If you are not familiar with the situation Turkey and the Kurds are having, you want to read up on that. It's not necessary to understand the movie/follow the story. It might be interesting to have this as a backdrop though to refer back to.

It's about a family in troubled times as you can imagine. One that has not only to face outside danger, but also has quite some turmoil inside the family. Feelings get hurt, but there is also violence especially with a thinking that may seem very backwards to a lot of people. Sometimes that is used for comedy (when it comes to technology or the "wonders" they achieve) but this is mostly a drama, with high stakes for every one involved. It's not easy to chew on and there are quite a few bumps along the road, still this has the right ingredients, it just needed a bit of a better direction and less confusion in parts
