slide

  Should I Really Do It? Truth might well be stranger than fiction, but who would have thought it could be so hallucinogenic?

Masumiyet (Innocence) review in Rotterdam Film Festival

slide

  There should be a door… Society has turned its back on Bekir, Ugur and Yusuf, three marginals who look for love in the most unlikely places. Director Zeki Demirkubuz’s tour-de-force love-triangle drama strikes a high note as it transforms its distinctly local story into universal themes of loss, sacrifıce and defeat. There is one […]

Uzak İhtimal (Wrong Rosary) review from Rotterdam

slide

    They say love is blind, and viewers of this wry, low-key, gentle-paced,notably chaste ‘romance’ (whose protagonists exercise such demure restraint that it makes Brief Encounter look like Last Tango In Paris) mustn’t to examine the plot too closely if they want to fall under its refined spell. Predicated on a series of unlikely […]

  You can watch Oyun (The Play) on iTunes with English subtitles in USA, UK, Canada and Ireland in addition to Turkey.
