7. Babam ve Oglum (2005)
108 min | Drama, Family
The family of a left-wing journalist is torn apart after a military coup in 1980's Turkey.
Even though I would recommend this movie to all cinema-lovers, a small attention would be thoughtful. Non-Turkish viewers could experience difficulty understanding and thus appreciating the drama and humor, due to the cultural specific nuances and sentiment. Alongside the French movie "Intouchables", this movie is the best drama I've ever watched.

Bad acting, simple storyline, annoying daughter (played by Maggie Grace, showing really bad, or a lack of, acting skills). Despite all of these negative characteristics, the movie is fun and exciting. The background, prostitution-slavery and East-European mobsters, combined with the awesome skills and character of Bryan Mills, played by Liam Neeson, make this movie really enjoyable.

12 | 133 min | Action, Crime, Drama
A married couple's life is turned upside down when the wife is accused of a murder.
Votes: 164,661 | Gross: $21.15M
Moments of simple plots and acting are more than compensated by the really exciting build-up to and the actual plot (no spoiler!).
