Storyline

The film is about two teenage girls, Behiye and Handan, with contrasting characteristics and backgrounds, forming a close relationship with sexual implications. As they become closer and closer the relationship becomes more fragile, and the impossibility of the survival of their relationship becomes more evident over time. Economic, social, psychological, and sexual problems come in the way. Behiye is angry and rebellious, but her frequent outbursts cut little ice with her conservative family. Handan is trapped in a different way, in a love-hate relationship with her single mother Leman. Although Leman is willing to turn tricks to raise Handan's college fees, she's otherwise hopeless with both men and money. When a mutual friend introduces Behiye and Handan they immediately hit it off, and despite the differences in their backgrounds they embark on an intense relationship, and with it a secret plan to escape their dysfunctional families.

Loved it
28 June 2007 | by helfiredetSee all my reviews

I watched this film without having read the book it was supposedly based on. The film centers on two teenage girls- Handan (played by Vildan Atasever) and Behiye (Feride Cetin). Handan is the easy-going popular girl with a relatively liberal upbringing. She lives with her single mother Leman (played by veteran actress Hulya Avsar) and rumor has it that her father is somewhere in Australia. Strongwilled Behiye (played by Feride Cetin) comes from a more middle-class background and wants to break free. She has bright red hair and a tomboyish personality.

The acting in the film is uniformly excellent. Vildan Atasever, Feride Cetin and Hulya Avsar all deliver strong multi-layered performances.The script is smart, being funny and touching at the same time. Another outstanding aspect was the soundtrack by Turkish rock band Replikas.
