Storyline

Ayse, a beautiful 19-year-old girl from the Turkish countryside, is chosen to be married to the handsome Hasan, son of formidable and house-proud mother Fatma, who resides in Vienna with her husband and six children. However, what soon becomes apparent is that Ayse is to be second wife to Fatma's husband. This tight-knit family go to great lengths to preserve traditional values and although polygamy is illegal in Austria, Ayse is welcomed with warmth. Yet, her presence in a country whose language and culture is entirely foreign to her immediately marks her as an outsider. As Western societal norms and Muslim religious beliefs draw closer together in an ever diversifying family unit, tensions arise, resulting in an explosive stroke of fate. Umut DaÄY's mature feature debut is a rich tapestry of swirling emotions, suppressed desires, unspoken words and uncomfortable yet pressing social and political questions. Written by Anonymous

Very interesting
23 February 2015 | by martin-pucherSee all my reviews

I rated this movie that high because it really gives an intimate view into a partial integrated Turkish family living in Vienna.

For me such a movie is so precious because I have the feeling that it can help to get a better understanding of a foreign culture in a time of right wing gain of influence everywhere in Europe.

I'm living in Vienna too and the amount of immigrants is on the rise and I often feel threaded by it myself.

Such movies help to open the eyes that they are also no more but simply humans which helps to break up the abstract idea we have about strangers without any clue what or who they really are.

Don't get me wrong: I'm not fond of the (in my eyes) medieval approach of the conservative Turkish-Islamic culture despite it is one of the most progressive in the Islamic world.

On the other hand I'm a bit jealous of the family quality while it got nearly lost in our modern western culture.

But one must keep in mind that their model is carried mostly on the shoulders of the female part of the family (like it was before in the Christian culture in the past).

To get back: It opens a view into their live and encourages the understanding of their culture which is a very important contribution in our "I fear the unknown" world.
