Aaah Belinda is one of the many movies produced in the fruitful years of 1980's, with a low budget, not totally & precisely worked on, but still a remarkable one distinguished from the others in the era.
The scenario ( and the story ) depends on an original idea, what if our lives change in a second to a totally different one in which we find everything we hate to do. That's not only a bad dream, it is truly a different life and it seems you get used to it. Müjde Ar plays one of her finest characters with some vague silliness.

He tried to overcome this situation casting the best actors & actresses and always keeping in mind the scenario is the main element of a movie, that's what keeps the spectators in their seats.
The original negatives of the movie must have been lost, so a very bad copy is transfered to a DVD for future generations, and that's a pity too...
