The Italian version of George Delerno's "I noni tis nihtas" is titled LA PORNO STORIA DI AMANDA (Porno story of Amanda).

Well, there is a lady telling her story, but is called Tina in the Greek version, not Amanda :)

Did you ever get my reply? I didn't get a confirmation.

And congrats to Stephen. Posted Image


Miltos, an idea: Why don't you just put up the names of those that has answered on a page and each one can check can if you got the answer or not. You can't answer everyone separately as the forum grows and hundreds take part in the contest. :)

Hi, I may do that later, at the moment the answers are not hundreds (we're only 100 members...) but really less. The first contest had about 12 answers only (!?), the second was around 25...I suppose it depends of the gift, right?

I deleted all answers, sorry, I beleive yours was there, I'm sure I sent confirmation...

OKUL (SCHOOL)
OKUL (SCHOOL)
Turkish horror comedy
Directed by Taylan Brothers in 2003
Cast: Burak Altay , Nehir Erdogan , Sinem Kobal , Berk Hakman , Cem Kılıç , Ali Sunal , Hamdi Alkan , Emre Kınay , Deniz Akkaya , Raga Oktay
Label: Palermo

When I saw the cover of OKUL I thought it was a silly teenage/school comedy with a few horror and sleazy elements, and the main reason I watched it was the expected sleaze. Now I must say that this film is not really sleazy and even if it has its funny moments it's not really a comedy...

We're at a Turkish college. The students wear uniforms similar with the UK. So you may guessed well, we have many sexy chicks wearing those skirts...anyway!
Gokalp publish a student newspaper called OKUL. When he meets Guldem he falls in love with her smile. From now on he writes songs for her (they're together in a local rock band) and he sends her some of his stories in red envellopes. When Guldem's lover finds out one of these letters he humilates him in front of her and some other friends.

Gokalp is desperate and commits suicide...

One year later his spirit, his ghosts is back seaking for vengeance. In fact the horror begins at the second half of the film.

OKUL is a very good movie...and very-very sad. Of course there are some jokes between teenagers but don't expect something like those US made silly films. The film manage to show characters and relationships and if you watch it with your girlfriend she may cry. That's it, a sad film about endless love and romance, friendship and betrayal. A top scene is in the classroom: Guldem feels some strange drops of water coming from the ceiling, it goes bigger and bigger. A teacher tastes it and finds out is salty. "The school is crying", he says...

But there are the funny moments of course. When a teacher finds out two students have some old classic Turkish films on DVD (in fact...Vivid porn films!) decides to screen them for all school. Also a school of small pupils is there to watch! During the first sex scene of the film one of the innocent pupils say: "I saw that in a documentary" !!

Also the film presents in the best way the distance between students and teachers and how teachers are selfish and sometimes even evil against students.

A sensual moment is when the beautiful teacher (a real sex bomb if you ask me!) shows her long legs to her students :blink:

As I said the real horror is in the second half of the film. But don't expect to find blood, gore or things like that. Directors try hard to create a good thriller but they only manage to made a rather weak one. A girl sees her alter ego in the mirrors (a living corpe), this is really scary. We have doors open & close mysteriously, closets doing the same, the gost even send...SMS (!?), a strange creature like a killer octopus coming out from a cell phone trying to eat the face of a guy... I mean nothing strong or original. And how could you have a good horror film without any killing? <_<

But the clever end comes to fix things. For me a nice ending is very important for a good film and this one here has a brilliant one :)

By the way Nehir Erdogan, the main young actress who plays "Guldem", is in Greek TV every day with the Turkish drama TV series YABANCI DAMAT (2004) about the love & marriage between a Greek guy and a Turk girl...
