Quotes

Yaman: Love is like trade. A good love must fulfill two obligations: First, never loose, keep what you have. Second, never stake everything on one card. You musn't risk love in it's entirety, you must keep some reserves, just in case. If you don't do that, you become the other person's slave, and believe me, the other person becomes sick of his slave.

Pretty dreadful
5 June 2006 | by (Milan - Munich) – See all my reviews

There is some merit in setting up a troubled character, whose drab life and misfortunate marriage are made self evident to her when she meets the closest thing to a stereotypical stallion on a trip to Istanbul, but, apart from rare and not too well used embryonic ideas, this movie fails to deliver in a most disappointing way.

It could have been a lot better, had the dialogues been made more credible, had the protagonist's "madness" been depicted with more undertones and a lot more finesse. I am sorry I spent a good part of an evening on it. Characters do not go any further than superficial and - I am afraid - stereotypical. Situations always seem a little bit beyond my willingness to suspend my disbelief, turning this movie into what I consider a serious flop.

Hope others saw more in it than I did, because I really saw very little merit in the efforts profused to make a potentially interesting Spanish/Turkish romance into film.
