The Mountain (2012)

The Mountain (Turkish: Dağ) is a 2012 Turkish drama film directed by Alper Çağlar.

The film tells a fictional story in which a duty team sent from a troop to repair a field antenna suddenly falls into an ambush. One short and one long term soldier, the only ones to survive, finally put an end to the war between themselves and join hands for the struggle against the real enemy. Carrying only two rifles, four clips, a broken antenna and their survival instincts. The mountain is a heroic tale of two young soldiers who discover brotherhood and fortitude.

Oğuz from Istanbul, despite having a legal right and money to pay for a shorter period of military service, he chooses to do it for a longer time no matter what rest of the people around him imposes to do. One week before he is discharged, he finds himself in such a danger to test his courage.

Bekir, who wrangles constantly with Oğuz, has been a long term soldier. He gets on well with neither his commanders, nor his term friends. He has two additional years to be discharged because of his rebellious actions. However Bekir has pure and unconcerned courage; to be side by side and shoulder by shoulder with Oğuz against the ambush will be a hard test even for him. Having put aside their past animosity just before the raid, they will force limits of bravery in the hardest conditions, and fight together against terrorism, performing exploit in an isolated, freezing and wild area.

A small but proactive team made this film by working in -15 Celsius where snow covered meters high, facing snowstorms in one of the peaks of Erzurum Palandöken and Konaklı. The shootings began in March.

According to some theories, the Gagauz people descend from the Seljuq Turks that settled in Dobruja, or from Pechenegs, Uz (Oghuz) andCuman (Kipchak) people that followed the Anatolian Seljuq Sultan Izzeddin Keykavus II (1236–1276). More specifically, one clan of Oghuz Turks migrated to the Balkans during the inter-tribal conflicts with other Turks. This Oghuz Turk clan converted from Islam to Orthodox Christianity after settling in the Eastern Balkans (in Bulgaria) and were called Gagauz Turks. A large group of the Gagauz later left Bulgaria and settled in southern Bessarabia, along with a group of ethnic Bulgarians.

According to other theories Gagauz are descendants of linguistically Turkified Kutrigur Bulgarians. In the official Gagauz museum, a plaque mentions that one of the two main theories is that they descend from the Bulgars.
