"Magical... We come to know these people so well that they’re still by our sides when we leave the film"
- Financial Times

"... a masterpiece which captures the pulse of the metropolis ... subtle and undogmatic ... pure melodrama, like the works of Sirk and Fassbinder ..."
- Süddeutsche Zeitung

There’s palpable verisimilitude in Asli Özge’s “Men On The Bridge“, a powerful portrait of working-class Istanbul that artfully suggests a wellspring of found moments. Quietly, steadily, it gathers a resonance belying its slice-of-life scale.“
- Andy Webster, New York Times

"
...Özge’s wonderfully fresh, insightful portrait of life in today’s Istanbul is equally relevant to any rapidly changing metropolis..."
-
Geoff Andrew, TimeOut

"... a diamond of current Turkish cinema; a powerful, multi-layered, closely watched portrait of the complex Turkish society."
- Fatih Akin, director

"A rare film which is consistently subtle in style and works uniformly on different layers. In an extraordinary way, details are genuine and spontaneous, and at the same time give the sense of everything being totally under the control of an agile intellect."
- Nuri Bilge Ceylan, director
