Storyline

Onur, who has been deaf since birth, works as a librarian. His father had left him and his mother when he was seven, and Onur has always blamed himself for this. Although being able to speak, he has chosen to stay silent because of the pitying looks of the people around him. At his friend Vedat's engagement party, he meets Zeynep, who later finds out about Onur's hearing disability, but is not bothered by it. She is forced by her overbearing father to leave home and gets a job at a call-center. Having to speak on the phone all day to people she doesn't know, Zeynep finds peace with Onur, who she communicates with perfectly without speaking... Written by antikor

One of the best Turkish movies I've ever seen.
12 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think Mert Firat and Ilksen Basarir (the director) did an excellent job in writing this great story and presented it by doing the best directing and casting. Mert Firat's acting in the movie is stunning. The way the story enrolls is easy to follow and exciting. The story is about miscommunication we all experience in the "modern" world. Specially, the miscommunication in our relationships with our closest friends and loved ones. The love is of course at the main road when we try to express the deepest feelings with simple words. Onur is dumb and deaf young man who is having a fight to be accepted and appreciated in his small community. Zeynep is a girl who is not happy with his workplace, boss, friends and family. Zeynep's job is about talking to people on the phone. She is a call center worker. Onur's world is silent but all other senses are active in his deep heart. And the love that they fell in is inspiring and teaching to each of them and to us. Love in a different language turns to living in a world that we value differences and first understand and to be understood. I hope that this universal valuable messages reaches to many. One of the best Turkish movies I've ever seen.
