Starring the Turkish sex icon, superstar Mujde Ar, "Iffet" is a Turkish mainstream hit in 1982 and a daring film for its social overtones. Some over-acting and cheesiness further adds to the atmosphere of the film. The famous rape scene and the immoral male character of the film (Cemil) have long become a part of Turkish pop culture.
A generation grew up, in the 90's and early 2000's, watching "Iffet" over and over on the private TV channels who exploited the film by screening it over and over again. Yet this exploitation elevated the film to a even greater cult status.
Being more than a turkploitation, "Iffet" delivers great directing (compared to other Turkish films of its time) and a gripping storytelling, regardless of some technical defects.
The super-slowmotion scene, where Iffet's father learns about 'Iffet's affair through the gossipping women in his butcher shop, is a gem.
