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

Just like a poem...
17 November 2008 | by muratbalciqSee all my reviews

OK, here comes first comment about the movie & hope not last..:)) Before I've seen the movie, I was expected that the picture will be great. But I had no idea that it would be that much wonderful...

In this kinda movies, realistic of whole dialogs is most important detail for me. It's so real. I felt it inside of me... And all soundtracks are amazing. Most harmonic choice to this picture. Turkish songs of 70's & 80's.. Acting and directing is nearly absolute.

The whole movie is real romantic, but the end of the movie is something much more than romantic. Maybe it is not a big deal. Not very big surprises... But, really dramatic and i couldn't stop my tears falling like everyone else in the theater..:) I've watched several romance movies, but many few of them means a lot for me. But believe me this one is different. It's so pure, so amazing...

I think Cagan Irmak's the best director of Turkey. He's really good at letting us know about all feelings inside the characters. I think everybody welcomes him in Turkey, but the whole world should do the same...
