Meanwhile, a number of mutilated legs found around Istanbul push the city into the terror of a serial murderer.

Uncomfortably Strong ...
27 August 2006 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Another excellent movie from Mustafa Altioklar... "Beyza'nin Kadinlari" is almost a peak at Altioklar movies, and I hope he'll have a chance throughout the world with this one...

Perfectly done psychological thriller emerging an unbelievable star, Demet Evgar who plays a multiple personality case with her soul. A beautiful, innocent, terrifying and disgusting character all merged in a woman with all respects.

Although you can predict what is going on, there's always a thread ready to tear apart.

Great cinematography ( though some intended dark scenes makes you loose some concentration ) with extensive camera & graphical images that strenghten the over all tension.

Like all other Mustafa Altioklar movies, this one's also worked on with every single picture, with every detail and natural awareness...

The story is simple, the characters with all variations are carefully studied in casting. It won't be wrong to tell this one a "Demet Evgar" movie with her theatrical skill but still you think Altioklar is on supervision anyhow. Tamer Karadagli plays a police detective in love with his work, tough and patient. Levent Uzumcu who plays Beyza's husband is in a totally different role than we know he is, also very successfully. All other secondary roles are played with talented artists of the Turkish Cinema, important or not important, with courage and discipline...

Beya'nin Kadinlari will perhaps be an internationally appreciated movie if some PR is done brightly. Because the movie is totally humanistic and can easily take place in any place in the world.

I watched the DVD version on a screen and I advise anyone to watch this one to see how far a developing country cinema go far.

Bravo Mustafa Altioklar & the hundreds of people who has given their heart for this smart and effective project.
