  • Sivan

    Stole story from brad pitt movie sleepers.

    • A

      They didn’t steal it from the movie. Both the movie and the TV show are based on the book ‘Sleepers’ which is clearly stated. Although, the TV show is much different and many details were altered and bettered. I really enjoyed the show. I’m not usually up for Turkish shows, but this one I liked. Especially because it’s been dubbed very well.

    It does not really matter who stole what. Suskunlar is a brilliant show. Totally loved it. Great cast. Murat was amazing. Good work guys.

  • kristina

    it’s “silence” not sleepers

    • A

      It is actually Sleepers. It’s based on a book by the same name. Although, the Turkish meaning might differ. Some call it The Game of Silence which is also how it has been translated in Arabic.
