This is new territory. Looks like we’re gonna be sailing
the stars for a while.
Murat Saygıner invites you to join the journey of a flying fish which marks the beginning of the transition to a new era. “It is just one more of the large views about the near reality from Murat. Seductive, powerful, using, in precise manner, the opportunities of CGI and proposing a message, familiar in many senses, perceived in clear way.” – says a stranger on IMDb
