Storyline

Alper is in his mid 30s and a good chef at his own restaurant. He loves luxury and spends his life with one-night stands and paid love. One day, his life changes utterly as he walks into a second-hand shop where he first encounters Ada who is in her late 20s and has a shop where she designs costumes for kids. She leads a modest life and one day while looking for a book, her and Alper's paths cross. Alper is fascinated by Ada's beauty and starts following her with the book she has been looking for. They both experience first signs of love, which they have never experienced before. Although Alper tries to fit Ada into his life, he realizes that this narrows his life down while on the other hand Ada has already fallen in love with him. 'Issiz Adam' portrays the life of those whose lives have been isolated by modern lifestyles. The film is also filled with food, mothers, old songs, and love. Written by Sahin Cetinkaya

deeply Turkish
16 October 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is a love story. and a solitude story. it is portrait of contemporary profound crisis of person self definition. and it is a delicate construction of need of the other. but, more important, it is a deeply Turkish film. the music, the atmosphere, the silences, the emotions. and this mark gives to it universal value. it can be sentimental, a romance like many other, slice of a flavor with soap opera nuances but each of that verdicts is far to be realistic. it represents only a mute cry. a mirror more than an artistic movie. and the performance of Cemal Hunai is inspired tool for present the hole of an existence full of shadows, insecure, almost empty.a special note for Yidilz Cultur who reminds in a precise manner the essence of traditional way to define life. honest, touching, gray. a beautiful movie.
