Storyline

A feudal village in Southeastern Turkey in 1970's. A poor peasant, Feyzo returns from military service dreaming about getting married to Gülo, the love of his life. However, he has to face many obstacles. According to tradition, a man has to pay a lot of money to the bride's father in order to get the bride's hand. While Feyzo is trying to deal with the greed of Gulo's father who is asking for an astronomical amount of money, he has to also convince his mother, who wants to buy an ox instead of a bride. Feyzo overcomes all these difficulties, but he gets kicked out of the village on his wedding day by the landlord, Maho Aga, who is eager to protect his status against any threat. However, Feyzo goes to the big city on exile only to bring back more problems for Maho. Written by Anonymous

A good hearted man named Feyzo learns what emancipation is...
20 October 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

One of the best Turkish comedies forever!

I have just watched millions of comedies but this is one of the funniest and most intelligent I've ever seen. Most of the American ‚New Hollywood' comedies are silly and too simple in my opinion. Nothing compares to ‚Kibar Feyzo'. 80 minutes entertainment!

Kemal Sunal alias Kibar Feyzo (in English: ‚the gentle Feyzo') is a good and naive guy from a village in Turkey. He wants to marry a girl, but her father (Ihsan Yüce, who also wrote the script) is against this marriage as long as Feyzo does not pay for his daughter, an old traditional deal in the past of Turkey. Feyzo does not have any money, so he tries everything to get his girl. He earns money in Istanbul, fights against the morality, learns a lot of things in Istanbul, e.g. that you can earn some money with a lavatory. So he builds a lavatory in his village (with some pieces of wood), but ‚Maho' (Sener Sen), a so-called mayor of the village, destroys everything Feyzo wants to do...

The story has original twists and wonderful moments. It's about emancipation, told in a very funny way. Great characters, great performances and a lot of original gags.

It's hard not to fall in love with this most wanted comedy of Turkey's 70's.
