This film was beautiful. I disagree with the other viewer's comments. This film is not sexist. This film was also filmed in Istanbul not a small city, so I am guessing the viewer has never been to Turkey. Maybe the English translations weren't good. I don't know, I saw this film in the original Turkish and it was beautiful. Admittedly, some parts were a bit predictable and some of the symbolism was cliché, but this film explores a non-traditional love story and it has many other side stories and alternate themes that are explored. I wonder if it was based on a true story and I am very impressed with the writer/director's portrayal of a multi-faceted Turkish male character.
