Agir Roman, (based on Metin Kacan's novel) directed by Mustafa Altioklar takes place in a famous suburban region of Istanbul.
The movie is excellent at depicting the lifestyle of gypsies and the outlaws. Beyond their way of living, it's the love between an elderly prostitute and a young guy that touches me deeply every time I watch the movie. This unconventional and passionate love is accompanied by sufferings of the two as well as their cravings for each other. The Turkish gypsies' style of living, behaving and sorting things out is intensively depicted throughout the whole movie with gloomy, catchy scenes and dialogs. The director has done a great job at taking the well-known Turkish novel to a new dimension and making the film impossible to forget. It's a unique film on love, lust and revenge. For those who haven't seen it, I have to say it's a must-see movie.
