Storyline

Alper is in his mid 30s and a good chef at his own restaurant. He loves luxury and spends his life with one-night stands and paid love. One day, his life changes utterly as he walks into a second-hand shop where he first encounters Ada who is in her late 20s and has a shop where she designs costumes for kids. She leads a modest life and one day while looking for a book, her and Alper's paths cross. Alper is fascinated by Ada's beauty and starts following her with the book she has been looking for. They both experience first signs of love, which they have never experienced before. Although Alper tries to fit Ada into his life, he realizes that this narrows his life down while on the other hand Ada has already fallen in love with him. 'Issiz Adam' portrays the life of those whose lives have been isolated by modern lifestyles. The film is also filled with food, mothers, old songs, and love. Written by Sahin Cetinkaya

the flavor
18 June 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

one of Turkish films about solitude, the other and love. seductive for atmosphere and for tension and for the manner to escape from yourself. simple, delicate, wise. one of films about the meet who change everything and who becomes not exactly essential but the fundamental choice for discover yourself. like many Turkish contemporary films, after its end, the only great memory remains the flavor. like the cinnamon flavor. sad. and refreshing. and this is all.
