I was surprised to find this movie at the cinema, I had forgotten that it had been released in the UK, so I decided to watch it. I found it to be very moving, it portrayed the situation in the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century very well. The only reason I did not give it an 8 was that I felt it could have been better. It is well acted, the story is well told and the acting is very good, although I did not particularly like the leading character. The problem with this movie is that it is a little bit too long. It could have been made shorter, it is an historical drama, and I think that the length of the movie could have been increased, so that it could have been less than an hour long. Overall, I would recommend it to anyone who likes history, especially if they are interested in the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century.

I can't imagine why the movie was rated so low. This movie has a very good story and a very good cast. There is no one person that is not good in the movie. If you like historical movies, this one is for you. I recommend it to everyone.

This is an excellent film, which portrays the horrors of the Turkish war of independence against the Ottomans. The film tells the story of an Ottoman officer, who is sent to the trenches of the First World War to work in the trenches. He is captured, tortured and executed. The film is based on the life of the author, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, who has also written the film. I enjoyed this film and it is worth seeing. It is a story of how a man was captured and tortured and executed. The film is filled with tension and suspense, and it is a must see.

I just finished watching this movie. I am not a huge fan of Turkish movies but I really enjoyed this movie. I was impressed with the way the film showed the history of the Ottoman Empire. I had no idea what the film was about and the plot was not very clear but the film made up for that. It was a very well made film. I recommend this movie to anyone who has a good taste in movies. I gave this movie an 8 out of 10.

This film is a mixture of the real and the unreal. It is the story of the mutiny in the Ottoman army, and the journey of a group of British officers and soldiers in the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. The film is based on the memoirs of Lt. Frank Liddell, who was the British officer sent to Turkey to negotiate a truce between the Turks and the British. The film is full of beautiful cinematography, and captures the everyday life of the Ottoman Empire. The film is slow moving, but the plot is worth the wait. The film is about a group of officers and soldiers who are sent to Turkey to negotiate a truce between the Turks and the British, but are betrayed by their own leaders. The plot follows the journey of the group, as they have to cope with their lives in a war zone, and the pressures of the war. The actors are all excellent, and the direction is superb. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in the period. I think this is a film worth watching.

I was surprised to see that the IMDb score was so low for this film. It's not a bad film, but it is a very depressing one. The movie starts out with a French officer named Claude (played by Claude Chabrol) arriving in Constantinople to start a new assignment in the Middle East. Claude is a very poor man, and so he gets into a dispute with the Turks. One night, Claude's wife is killed by a sniper in the Turkish border, and his only friend in the world is his driver, named Reza (played by the great Farhad Mehdi). He sees the opportunity to start a new life for himself in the Middle East, and he is determined to make it happen. Unfortunately, Reza is also the man that Claude has to take care of. He does everything possible to keep Claude happy, and that makes Claude realize that he's the one that is the real problem. It's a very depressing movie, and I really didn't like it. I think that if it was a little more uplifting, it would have been much better. The ending is rather sad, and I think it would have been much better if there was a bit more romance in the film. Overall, I think that this is a very good movie, but I still think it could have been a lot better.

I have been to several World War I museums and exhibitions in the US, and I am very familiar with the concept of World War I, and how it was perceived by the German population. This film, in my opinion, is a very good representation of this era. As a German, I can see the great fear and tension that World War I caused, the feeling of fear and uncertainty of the German population, and the need to protect their country. It is an excellent film that tells this story in a way that is easy to understand and understand in a German context. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to learn more about World War I.

This is a well written, well acted film. The actors all do a great job, and the script is very well written. It shows the brutal and horrifying reality of the First World War. You will cry at the end of the film, and the ending is heartbreaking. I recommend this film for all ages. I thought it was excellent. I give it an 8. If you have not seen this film, then you should see it, because it is a well written film, and the acting is great. I also give it a 10 for the ending.

I don't know if this movie was meant to be a "political" statement or a "message" movie. It definitely has a message but it is not "message" movie, but it is an interesting look at a man who was at war in a foreign country and who lost his family. I don't think that the movie is as "objective" as many would like to make it out to be. It is certainly not a "hollywood-style" movie. It is very real. I believe that the movie does a good job of portraying the struggle of an individual who was fighting for his country and losing his family. It is not always easy to understand the feelings of someone who is going through such a difficult period of his life. The movie is not a perfect movie, but it is definitely a good movie. It is one of the most personal movies I have ever seen. It is a very sad movie, but it is a very good movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in a movie that is "message" and "political".

This movie has been re-made many times over the years but the fact that it still works is what makes it so good. It's based on a true story about an officer in the Ottoman Army who helped a German officer to escape from the Turkish army after the death of the commander of the Ottoman forces. The officer hid him in his house and the German officer did not want to tell the officer of his true identity. The story is told in a very interesting way and the acting is very good. The movie is about a Turkish man who was in the army during World War I. His father was killed in the war and he was in the army and he joined the Turkish Army. One day the Turkish Army came to the village and the man went to the house where he hid the German officer. The German officer who was hiding was told about his true identity and he ran away. The Turkish officer tracked him down and killed him. The story is told in a very interesting way. It is a great movie that is worth watching.

The Ottoman Lieutenant is a very good film. The acting is good, the direction is good, and the script is good. I thought it was a good film to start off with. I thought it was a very good film to end with. The film is not for everyone. It is not a "political" film. The film is not "Hollywood" in any way. The film is very realistic and it is about the struggles of a young man, who was under the thumb of the Ottomans for many years. I think this is a very good film. I think it is one of the best films I have seen in a very long time. I am a big fan of the late, great, and great actor, James Woods. He plays the role of the Ottoman Lieutenant very well. He is very believable. The film does not portray the Ottomans in a bad light. In fact, the film is very accurate and very true to the facts. I think that the film is very well done. I give it an 8/10.

Truly an epic, I would say. A shame that this film didn't do better. Some of the acting is superb, but the story is so thin and the direction is so weak that it's hard to take the film seriously. The characters are shallow, the story is weak and the directing is terrible. Still, I did enjoy this film, although it doesn't have much to offer. It's worth a look, though.

This movie was very powerful. It is based on a book called "The Sultan and His Regime" by Bruce Manners. It is a documentary of the life of Sultan Abdulhamid I. The movie covers the last year of his life and the events leading to the overthrow of his government. It is an interesting look at the history of a leader who is remembered for being "a dictator". I thought the movie was very interesting. I thought that it was very hard to watch, but it was worth it. The acting was very good. It was very hard to see the people of Turkey and how they felt about the events of the movie. The movie is very well done. It was worth the watch.

I am sorry to say that I have not seen this movie in a while. It was in my collection for a long time. It is one of the most memorable movies I have ever seen. I just recently rented it, and it was a complete shock. I am not sure why it has been so hard to find for so long. It is truly a must see. The acting is good. The directing is great. The story is great. It is the best movie I have seen in years. I would say it is better than "American Beauty". I have never seen a movie like it. It is truly a gem.
