Movie Info

Ottoman Empire Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror plots to conquer Constantinople and bring about the downfall of the Roman Empire in this historical epic from director Faruk Aksoy (Yesil Isik). For 1,500 year the Roman Empire has flourished. Though many have tried to invade the Byzantine fortress, the massive walls protecting the city have made it virtually impenetrable. Ascending to the Ottoman throne following the death of his powerful father, 19-year-old Fatih Mehmet vows to succeed where all others have failed. Over the course of the next two years, Fatih plans his elaborate invasion as astute Emperor Constantine assembles a powerful league of allies to defend the Imperial city. Later, on the night of April 1st, 1453, the citizens of Constantinople fill the streets to celebrate Easter as Fatih leads an army of thousands right to the city gates. Before the sun rises the following day, a new chapter of history will be written, and a new empire born.

The movie, a hit on its home turf of Turkey, is a straight-up shot of martyrdom and extravagance, honor and glory.

This film's so bad, it's a pretty great 'what not to do' in filmmaking.

Conquest 1453 is a muddled pool of hypocrisy. While it feeds on the common paranoia of seeing the West as an unwelcoming and disreputable crowd, it reinforces our collective consciousness' aspirations for superiority in two very contradictory ways

If you see only one Turkish epic about the siege of Constantinople this year, it should be Fetih 1453. Fetih has intrigue, dancing girls, hunky men, and a spunky heroine.
