Storyline

A love affair threatened by a barrier as great as itself... Can differences of faith stand in the way of an innocent love affair? Two young people, Esma and Mustafa, fall in love. For them, the future only has meaning if they are together. Failing this, life is meaningless. However, overhanging their love is a barrier unique to the period and location: Mustafa is a clandestine Christian, when everyone including Esma thinks he is Muslim. In the meantime, the Ottoman Empire introduces a series of reforms giving Christians the same rights as Muslims. From this point on, the Church urges secret Christians to reveal their faith. This poses a dilemma for Mustafa: he is caught between his love and the Church. Written by askyourheart

Fantastic movie from Turkey!
13 April 2010 | by diane-sweeting2See all my reviews

I enjoyed the movie very much so... It is a rather moving story. The settings, colors, music and the plot make up a real masterpiece. Cast was successful, their acting and the harmony among them were clearly the result of hard work. Adopting the accent of the region is another issue. I decided to take a trip to Black Sea region when I saw the movie and I can tell you that it is definitely worth seeing. The selection of settings truly reflect the nature of the Black Sea region. I would recommend the movie to everyone, as it deals with love and discrimination, a controversial issue open to everyone. Everyone could find something about themselves in the movie easily. Confrontation of love and religion. How could you choose among the two? Your belief or your love?
