Editorial Reviews

Under the harsh feudal system in the Anatolia region of Turkey in the 1920s, Abdi Aga (Peter Ustinov), an illiterate tyrant with pretentions of learning, owns five impoverished villages along with their inhabitants including Memed (Simon Dutton), a rebellious young man who decides to escape into the mountains and become a brigand. He takes with him his 17 year old girlfriend Hatche (Leonie Mellinger).A threat to the Aga's authority, Memed is pursued and in a confrontation the Aga's nephew is killed. Hatche, though innocent, is captured and charged with his murder. A distraught Memed determines to rescue her but has to plan his move carefully for there is now a price on her head. In the meantime his chivalry and determination to free his people has won the hearts of the brigands who vow their allegiance to him.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was disappointed . it did not capture the feeling of story of Yasar Kemal , s novel " Ince Memed" Memed My Hawk . I am always very found Of Peter Ustinov whom he did part as villain in the movie Peter Ustinov disappointed me either as an actor as Villain as well as his directorial work The story is poorly presented. It was a story of tale and spirits of people of cotton pickering in Cukurova in the novel ..This was by passed ,not included The cinematography was poor below the average This movie should be done by better director Who may capture and understand the real story of "ince Memed" as written as By great writer Mr Yasar Kemal. I wish great English director Sir David Lean were alive whom could have made Memed my Hawk as-good as Dr Zhivago
My rate the Movie is one and a half stars . Selcuk Sozen

Notice the cover and the expression of shock of Ustinov's face because this was taken from his death scene in which he is shot to death. Okay, I had to give this a whole lot of thought. The point that Ustinov was trying to make which I had missed is this: He portrayed a dictator that really needed to be removed so, he was removed but the thing is that he did it in such a roundabout way, by the time his death scene finally takes place, who cares? He really should've taken a way more direct approach but, get this, Ustinov had somehow managed to retain the rights to this film posthumously so that a remake can't ever be made.
