Storyline

Year 1977, a September morning in Ankara... Yilmaz tries to rush his pregnant wife Neriman to the hospital and he crushes into Omer's car. This accident causes Omer's pregnant wife Inci, who was in the back seat, to have a pre-term labor. The babies are born on the same day. They see each other for the first time... This accident is the threshold of the coincidences that bring Ozgur and Deniz together. They come across each other in Ankara several times during their childhood and youth. Each intersection has a butterfly effect, resulting in drastic changes in their lives. They become each other's puppy love or their first heartbreak... But beyond this, each confluence changes their route of life. Not only theirs, but also their families'... They sometimes cause disasters, sometimes miracles. However, they can never be together. Whatever it is that brings them together, manages to build a transparent wall between them. Until they come across each other again in Istanbul, 25 years later... Written by Anonymous

I applaud Turkish cinema!
11 January 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Before I proceed let me give to you my background as an audience viewing a Turkish movie.

I have absolutely no idea about Turkish culture, the language, the people, the food or the music let alone Turkish cinema. But after years of having become frustrated and annoyed with the lack of quality and essence of Hollywood romance I knew I had to turn to a new film industry altogether to satisfy my need for romance (as a movie enthusiast).

How I stumbled upon this title is another story but I wish to thank IMDb for that, I would just say that this movie is easily the best romance movie I have ever seen.

It just checks all the right boxes!

Let me appreciate the chemistry between the pair, Ozgur and Deniz first, their love looks real and not overdone at all. It is just perfect, just about right. I have always believed that for the romance genre no matter how big a star cast you manage to get, if the chemistry between the two leads is not there you just fail.

Before Sunrise and Sunset are prime examples of successful romantic cinema which worked because the couple worked too, of course a script is ever important but it's the actors that attract you in the first place.

The story line never bores the viewer even though you might find yourself predicting what happens in the end, your prediction will most likely come 5 minutes before the movie ends, so you can be sure to enjoy every bit of this amazingly done film.
