Three - Way Mirror : İstanbul Athens Rome
This turn-of-the-millennium portrait weaves together there light-hearted tales of Rome, Athens and Istanbul. Here are the Colosseum, the Parthenon, and Hagia Sophia, yet the characters shows sides of each city that the casual visitor would never see. Fascinating fun. A Polish musician teaches a Georgian refugee how to beg on the streets of Rome; a Russian barmaid ducks a police shootout in Athens; a Kyrgyz madman climbs trees to watch eagles fly over the Bosporus.
The magical blend of art and politics illustrates the clash of cultures in Europe, and its easy style lets you toss the heavy mantle of history in air like a scarf in the wind.
