Sasifelek Cikmazi is a hilarious, heart-warming, energetic TV series. It has an wonderful ensemble cast including some of the best actors in Turkey, and their talent is matched with the fascinating script of Mahinur Ergun. The story is simply the daily life in an old Istanbul neighborhood - 'Sasifelek Cikmazi'. I was always amazed how the producers rounded up so many good actors - and keep them together for so long on one set. The characters are so lifelike and real. Especially the performances of Derya Alabora, Fikret Kuskan, and Suzan Aksoy bring a fascinating energy into the production. It was produced by TRT - Turkish public television, which guarantees a high standard of production quality and subtle social responsibility. I believe it will be well-received in the Balkans, the Meditterranean and Eastern Europe, but it is not meant for a Nordic audience.
