Love Triangle
7 January 2009 | by semarwSee all my reviews

True love is the thing people try to find for centuries. But you will question what is "true love" while watching this classic film of Turkey.

Is it a physical attraction or is it a full devotion (sharing the good and bad sides of life). The story is a known one. An innocent girl and a passionate young man... And a third person enters their life. This could be seen as a love triangle. And the girl with the red scarf has to make a decision....

And you will think what you would do if you were Asya. You must think twice.
