Is Turkey's New Blockbuster About The Conquest Of Constantinople Too Nationalistic?
"A scimitars'n'CGI blockbuster account of the fall of Constantinople to the Ottomans in the 15th century, it is the country's most expensive film ever ($17m budget), most popular (4.6m tickets in its first 18 days) and most lucrative ($29m and counting). But if you think the smell of unanimity is in the air, think again. Plenty of folk have queued up to question Fetih 1453's take." The Guardian (UK) 03/28/12
