Conrad un ragazzino sopravvissuto a un incidente aereo, viene soccorso niente meno che da un gigantesco Bigfoot di nome Flink. I due appartenenti a due razze nemiche spinti dalla necessità stringono un legame di amicizia e protezione reciproca, superando diffidenze e pregiudizi, fino a rischiare la propria vita per salvare quella dell’altro… e riscoprire legami che credevano perduti.
14 million, this was the most expensive Turkish film ever made at the time of its release before being surpassed by A. Opinions of the film greatly varied. The film covers through fiction real-life events like the occupation of Iraq, the execution of Daniel Pearl and the Abu Ghraib torture scandal. The arrest is infamous in Turkey as the so-called “Hood event”. The soldiers were led out of their headquarters at gunpoint, with hoods over their heads and subsequently detained for sixty hours before being released, after Turkey protested to the United States. This was the first time such an incident had taken place between the two NATO allies.
The film opens with a fictional depiction of a real-life incident, the “Hood event”. A Turkish officer named Suleyman Aslan, who was a member of the special forces troops involved in the Hood event, is unable to bear the shame of what happened, and commits suicide. Alemdar is a former Turkish intelligence agent who has recently severed links to the government agency for which he worked. At a checkpoint, Alemdar and his team kill three Iraqi Kurdish paramilitary troops called “Peshmerge”. They attach explosives to the foundation of a hotel, to which they demand Colonel Sam William Marshall, who was responsible for the hooding incident, come.
Marshall raids an Arab wedding on the pretext of hunting “terrorists”. Ali sticks a branch up the barrel of one of the soldiers’ guns. En route to Abu Ghraib, an American soldier complains that the prisoners might be suffocating in the truck. One of Marshall’s men then fires on the truck, spraying the detainees with bullets. See, now they won’t suffocate to death”, he says.
