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.

Politics, humanity, war and LGBT rights all in a gritty, realistic movie ...Reviewed byimranahmedsgVote: 8/10

The link between war, development and poverty is unequivocally demonstrated in this Turkish movie about the long standing Kurdish insurgency in the country's eastern provinces. Most people just wish to get on with their lives and have no time for nationalisms or 'isms' of other sorts. Indeed, ask the transvestite character in the film, and it's clear most of us have many of our own problems without taking on the burdens of others onto our own shoulders.

Nonetheless, humans cannot be divorced from the realities around them. Hence, the individual who joins a political movement infused with the idealism of youth. Pitted against him is his brother who believes in the power and strength of the state to deliver services, e.g. education and healthcare. As these two fight, innocent farmers and shepherds who happen to live in villages in the battleground suffer.

To suffer means economic destruction and even death.

This is the story of one such family caught up in Turkey's Kurdish insurgency. Simultaneously, the movie reveals the conservative and male dominated nature of rural Turkish society.

It's a sad movie - prepared to shed tears. But 'I Saw the Sun' is a social statement which provides powerful insights for any student of Turkish society. The movie provides few answers but forces us to ask the right questions.

A must watch for anyone interested in Turkish society.

In Turkish with English subtitles.

A winnerReviewed byS_M_GVote: 9/10

I lived in Turkey when Mahsun Kirmizigul was a folk(arabesk) singer then I moved away...

I'm a rock/hip hop woman, I never paid much attention to him; always thought his kind of music was "beneath me". How elitist, how inconsiderate of me!

I moved back to Turkey 2 months ago from US and I watched "Gunesi Gordum" today...

Mahsun Kirmizigul won my respect, my admiration today...

Gunesi Gordum is an amazing movie. Every scene in the movie, every actor is spot on. It touches extremely sensitive subjects in Turkey and comes out a winner.

This movie makes you cry for the terrorists' family AND for the soldier that died defending his country. A son is a son. That's what this movie shows you without politicizing it.

It makes you see the pain of the homophobic brother facing the transvestite brother.

It makes you see how "privileged" you are while a big part of your country / world is just trying to HOLD ON....

Thank you Mahsun for this movie. I really hope you get the recognition you deserve.
