- What reward?

Don't they give a reward

to whoever catches them?


Cowboy Ali. $10,000.

the market. Come on!

''Mara Massacre''

Cowboy Ali Sideways.

since you came to lstanbul to find...

- ...Ylmaz Gney and be a movie star?

- Eight.

His costume's rotted on him.

He came to find his fellow townsman

but ended up finding me.

That Gney's always

making trouble.

Like you aren't!

When l got here he went to prison

He got out only to go back in.

He'll get out, don't worry

Enough about him.

You're good at sniffing out news

Are there any protests tomorrow?

There's nothing this week.

But if someone gets shot there

might be a small protest.

There's no market tomorrow

How are we going to eat?

lt's time to take

an interest in current events!

Whose turn is it now?

We dropped by Gltekin' s.

They weren't in,

so we went to Sinan's.

Then tomorrow we go to

Gltekin' s And Sinan's the next day.

Who says politics doesn't fill your belly!

Enjoyed it, brother Erturul? More?

Since you insist,

l'll have another, brother Rt.

- ln the name of God..

- ln the name of God...

You're not meeting with

those degenerates are you?


You mean Sinan's group?

We haven't seen them forweeks

For all we know they're dead.

lt's true, chief. l saw them leaving

the mosque the otherday.

Good for you

So you've started doing your prayers.

My head's glued to my prayerrug.

l pray 8 or9 times a day.

l do it 20, 25 times.

They're making up fortime

You know what it's like.

You know betterthan me.

Hmm, l see.

Tell me you've given up wine too.

Sure we have

We only drink mare's milk.

Rt, give me another one.

Hey, get yourpaws off my soup!

Thanks, sister.

We haven't had a bite

to eat for a week.

lf you get hungry, come here.

There's always a pot of soup.

No money forfood, but you've

got plenty forwine and fun.

Some of our guys

saw you the other night.

Singing and carrying

on by the waterfront.

That's a big, fat lie.

Yourfriends must have mixed

us up with someone else.

There are lots of winos

like us in Balat.

Could you get me some water?

Wno's just a figure of speech

lt's not like we can scrounge any.

- Especially with these price hikes

- Prices are breaking ourbacks.

l don't get it.

A bottle of wine was 43 lira last month.

Now the same bottle's 48 lira

Same bottle, same wine.

lf there was more wine

l wouldn't say anything.

But why does that bastard

grocerkeep hiking the price?


- lt's not the grocer's fault

- lt's not?

lt's not something he decides

lt's government policies.

See, Apo.

You gave the groceran earful for nothing.

We'll track down that ''gubmint'',

whoeverthe pimp is.

l wonderwhich mosques he goes to.

- Ah, that explains the new shoes

- From the doorstep.

Don't do that again.

lsn't stealing beneath you?

You said you were going to take

from the rich and give to the poor.

We just got a head start to

save you some of the trouble.
