one of the darkest movies in modern Turkish cinema!!!
6 November 2009 | by (istanbul,turkey) – See all my reviews

The director continues to tell the story of losers. Because the film is an adaptation of a novel, it can be regarded as different from the other films of the director. However, the main character of the film is a loser and a very dark person like the main characters in other movies. The story is about Seniha, a very ugly and unmarried women. She lives with his older brother and his wife. She is jealous of his brother and his wife and wishes them to be unhappy like her. She encourages young and unexperienced wife to have an affair with a young boy. She plans to take the revenge from her brother. When she informed her brother that his wife has an affair, he murders the young lover and goes to prison.But this is not enough for Seniha.The feeling of jealousy is such an enormous that the feeling can be over if her brother would be dead.

We have seen so many films telling the story of couples cheating each other. There is also love triangle in this movie. But the character deciding the events is not one of them. There is a fourth character who manages the affairs to take her revenge from her brother maybe from all over the world.Seniha is an unique character in Turkish cinema so it is worth to see it.
