Storyline

Ali is 18. His feet are firmly off the ground. The very idea of marriage seems like a game. But the bride's parents are ready and willing. Business ventures will be set up between the families; the arrangement will pay off all round. Ali, meanwhile, is more interested in playing with puppets and dressing up as a rooster for the travelling theatre. His fiancée has only so much patience... So what should his parents do? What was that? Hire a Borrowed Bride? Meaning exactly what? Well just that: borrow a bride, as the title of the film suggests...... Written by Anonymous

A true story about puppy love
23 January 2007 | by (Paris,France) – See all my reviews

Atif Yilmaz is the Turkish equivalent of the famous French new wave filmmaker Eric Rohmer. Their films are becoming more and more sweeter as they are getting older. "Egreti Gelin" in Turkish means a borrowed bride. It is the poignant tale of a poor girl employed by a rich man to teach his son the tricks of a happy marriage. The inept boy rejects the girl chosen by his mother and falls for the poor "borrowed bride". Apart from these funny, comical scenes, the film has its share of drama as well as tragedy as the poor girl's husband comes from prison to take revenge on the man(boy) who has stolen his wife.A winsome film for all those who are enjoying the joys of true love.
