A woman let's a harmless looking fortune teller into her house. The fortune teller is clearly gifted, but it turns out she had no intention of just telling fortunes... and soon the woman deeply regrets letting her in. It's a psychological drama - with some Turkish style comedy moments - in which nobody is what he/she seems to be. The name Nar/Pomegranate refers to the pomegranate as the forbidden fruit that Eve eats in the Garden of Eden (according to the Quran, like the apple in the Cristian tradition) and symbolizes sin or earthly pleasure. I give the movie a 7+, because the story has some good, unexpected turns. It's definitely worth watching if you like Turkish cinema.
