Beautiiful Turkish Comedy/Drama
28 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Calikusu (Love Bird) is a dramatic serial showing the growth of love between two cousins in Turkey during the Ottoman Empire at the beginning of the last century. The sets and costumes are richly detailed and so beautiful. I adore the music and THANK YOU to the translators and the casting. The story is set in the wealthy home of Feride's aunt and uncle. Young Feride is tragically orphaned as a young girl and is brought up by her loving aunt and uncle where she slowly falls in love with her attractive, kind, and humorous cousin. Their relationship grows with the tumultuous family history. I have enjoyed the journey, the false identities, the youthful games, the colorful parties, the family squabbles. LOVED IT!
