Turkish production is gaining prominence in the top 10 of the streaming platform Netflix, both in Brazil and worldwide.
The plot of it is based on the story of Memo, played by Aras Bulut Lynemli, who has a certain cognitive impairment, and lives in a village in Turkey with his daughter, Ova, and his grandmother.
In an incident in which the daughter of a local military man dies, Memo is unjustly accused of being the culprit and is therefore arrested and convicted.
THE plot is exciting from beginning to end. In about 2 hours and 13 minutes of plot, those who watch are completely immersed in the story. It is difficult to find someone to accompany the scenes and not let a tear fall with the passages.
Each point is very well thought out, from the scenarios and the play of colors to the striking details of each personality.
Ova is an emblematic child, who sees life in the same way as his father. In a naive and pure way.
The others arrested they also assume a fundamental role; the most important scenes take place in cell 7.
Each dialogue in the feature film takes on a unique position, taking the breath away from those who follow it.
There is a great discussion around topics that are often not considered. One is the issue of family and unity, showing an extremely loving relationship between father and daughter. Another aspect was friendship, which was clearly shown in the combination of Memo’s cellmates, which, in fact, was extremely striking for the development of the most beautiful parts of the film.
Topics such as injustice and pre-judgments are addressed as well. Virtues that are often not taken seriously, assume a leading role throughout the script, showing how serious an accusation of which there is no foundation can be. Compassion and love for others are, without a doubt, the most important moral in history.
The fact that it is a foreign production behaves as another example of breaking the paradigm of American cinema, since large productions of the most diverse nationalities have been conquering a large space in the seventh art.
The main actor has already won several awards on Turkish TV and the expectation is that the film will be recognized globally, and may even be considered for nominations for larger awards.
It is an extremely suitable film for everyone, being, perhaps, one of the best current productions launched by the platform.

Is ‘The Miracle in Cell 7’ a true story?
Fans have been wondering if there is a real story on which the plot of the film would have been based. And no, the film is not based on a true story, but it was inspired by a South Korean film that had the same name and was released in 2013.
However, unlike the heart-warming Turkish version, the original South Korean adaptation is more of a comedy drama. The popular film was also adapted and released in the Philippines, Indonesia and India.
After watching the movie, many viewers went to social media to share their verdict.
“I just watched a miracle in cell 7 and let me say that I think I never cried so much during a movie,” wrote one of them.
Another agreed when he published on the social networking site: “The miracle in cell 7 made it known to the world that men can also cry”.
“So, I watched this movie. A miracle in cell number 7. I cried a lot. I’m not even ashamed to admit it, ”shared a third Twitter user.
See what “Lingo, Lingo! Bottles! ”
An expression that is said several times by the protagonists of the film, has left everyone puzzled. After all, what does it mean?
The expression, spoken by Ova (Nisa Sofiya Aksongur) in the film, and that is followed by one (bottles) from your father, Memo (Aras Bulut İynemli), is part of a famous Turkish song, Lingo Lingo Şişeler. Check out the song, with scenes from the film and behind the scenes of:
According to the website, the word “shisheler” is a misspelling of the Turkish word , whose direct translation is. Already , means nothing in Turkish or English. In fact, it is just a kind of song, similar to that in Portuguese.
Theory explains REAL reason why prisoners sacrifice
Who watched undoubtedly was moved by the ending. But, the last few minutes of the film left viewers with a question: after all, why Yusuf Aga (Mesut Akusta) gave his life, instead of Memo (Aras Bulut İynemli)?
Be careful, this article contains de!
One theory points out that there is more than compassion and empathy involved in the prisoner’s decision. According to fans of Netflix success, Yusuf is Ova’s grandfather (Nisa Sofiya Aksongur). Understand how this would be possible.
End of the movie
In Memo (Aras Bulut), a man with intellectual disabilities, is separated from his daughter and imprisoned, guilty of the death of a commander’s daughter. During the feature, he tries to prove his innocence, without success.
When everything seems lost and the gallows await, the members of Memo’s cell unite, believing in his innocence, to save him from the tragic and unjust death, provided, also, with the help of the prison director, Nail (Sarp Akkaya ) and guard Faruk (Deniz Celiloglu).
On the day scheduled for execution, Guard Faruk keeps a large part of his guard occupied. In addition, friends of cell boss 7, Askorozlu, hit the commander’s car, preventing him from witnessing the hanging.
It is then that the greatest miracle happens. A man, Yusuf, offers to be hanged in place of Memo. This embittered man believes that this is a form of redemption for the crime he committed – killing his daughter.
In order for the plan to work, the prison director tells everyone that Yusuf escaped during a rebellion, sending guards to look for him. Meanwhile, Memo is put in a car and taken back to Ova.
In an exciting reunion of father and daughter, the film ends with them on a boat, heading for a new life in another country. Years later, we see Ova about to get married, holding a box in her hands – the only reminder of the man who gave his life for his father.
Yusuf was Ova’s grandfather
A theory that has been gaining momentum on the Internet is that Yusuf was Ova’s grandfather. According to fans of the film, Yusef was a very strict man, and on learning that his daughter was pregnant, he reportedly handed the child over to Memo, killed his daughter and buried her under a tree.
Near Yusuf’s bed, there is a small hole, which he always faces. This hole reminds him of the tree under which his daughter is buried. No other prisoner sees the drawing of a tree there, but when Ova visits the cell, she sees it too.
What makes the theory even more meaningful is the fact that the film talks so little about Memo’s marriage. He tells his cellmates that the wedding was arranged and that there was no party. The possibility that Memo is not Ova’s biological father is also raised by fans.
Memo not recognizing Yusuf in jail can be easily explained. Since the wedding was arranged and without a party, this may indicate that it was done in a secret way and, thus, Memo would not have known the bride’s father.
While it is not possible to claim that all of this is true, the theory that Yusuf was Ova’s grandfather makes a lot of sense. The sacrifice he made, in addition to saving an innocent, would give his son-in-law and granddaughter a chance to start over. The true.
