Storyline

Ayse, a beautiful 19-year-old girl from the Turkish countryside, is chosen to be married to the handsome Hasan, son of formidable and house-proud mother Fatma, who resides in Vienna with her husband and six children. However, what soon becomes apparent is that Ayse is to be second wife to Fatma's husband. This tight-knit family go to great lengths to preserve traditional values, and although polygamy is illegal in Austria, Ayse is welcomed with warmth. Yet, her presence in a country whose language and culture is entirely foreign to her immediately marks her as an outsider. As Western societal norms and Muslim religious beliefs draw closer together in an ever diversifying family unit, tensions arise, resulting in an explosive stroke of fate. Umut DaÄY's mature feature debut is a rich tapestry of swirling emotions, suppressed desires, unspoken words and uncomfortable yet pressing social and political questions. Written by Anonymous

One of the most important thing in a given film is acting. There is no doubt in that. And Kuma definitely nailed that. However, the story paste and the writing is as important as acting and Kuma was not that great in that. Given the powerful topic, the writer/s could have done a much better job. For the most part, it was really hard to tell between the time passages, whether it was a day, a month, or a year that passed. For that reason, it was hard to follow it. Also, you could easily guess what was going to happen next. For instance, the mother was in the surgery, but then the father does. How? Why? Nobody knows. I understand that it was for the purpose of raising a suspicion, but I doubt it was as successful. Again, the acting was superb! I was amazed by all the performance the two leading female characters put forth. For those who like dramas, I would suggest them to take a look at it. Although there are some flaws with the film, it is well worth seeing.
