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

Quotes

Alper: Right after we split up I felt light as a bird... I thought I'd done both you and me a favour... Until the smallest thing messed me up completely... That day, a miniscule hairclip of yours laughed at me. It was that morning that I realised I'd lost you... and so many other things. You'd never be there again... I'd never have this with anyone else... Life kept laughing at me. I saw similar faces to yours... felt similar smells... heard similar voices. Or I felt so. I don't know. You know what? ...

Simplicity is the best !
11 February 2009 | by csaltunSee all my reviews

What I heard from most watchers is that everybody found somethings from their own life in Issiz Adam. They say that the movie is amazing just because catches you from your heart and mind like it tells your own life but not Alper and Ada's.To be honest, I definitely do not have the same feeling. What I think is that the movie is purely simple and that is why everybody finds somethings in it. Most of us try to find the real meaning of the scenes, speeches etc in movies but with Issiz Adam; many people do overlook while trying to find somethings deep.

I could not understand what Alper wants also why his actions are always fulsome. What he wants and why? You find no answer in the movie. On the other hand, Ada looks like well experienced on relations with men but how she could fall in love with that bombastic guy? Can we just say that "because the love is somethings like this"? Sorry I do not agree.

Well, besides the story and acting, the scenes and songs are really beautiful. So I recommend this movie to the lovers of oldies and to the people who feel lonely in their life.
