After I have read the reviews above I have to say that first I didn't find the film sexist and I don't believe that the director supports the behavior of the leading male actor. I prefer to see it like there are men who behave like Metin, and the director chosen to make a movie which includes one of those men. I can criticize acting also, some scenes are really over theatrical (the doorman and the shoes for instance or sidekick of Metin character and even in some scenes including Metin ( Sezai Paraciklioglu) ). But I really like to see characters who drink beer and tequila in a bar instead of raki in the name of underlining Turkish Identity or red wine to underline the "intellectual artist" figure. Besides catching fish and making raki-fish lunch, putting a bowl for leaking chimney is nice choices to make everything real in such a "fantastical" romance.
Usually Turkish directors have an intention to exaggerate scenes of love and sadness with slow motion effects, high pitch music, but the directors choice in İncir reçeli was too naïve as in the scenes of cigarette burn in the tea shop, kiss int the bus stop, rose petals on the floor and etc. time pass effects were also successful. So shortly I believe it is a perfect 8 with all goods and bads.
