Storyline

Last days of 1941 summer, the era of Obligation, during the famine atmosphere of the Second World War. In the middle of all this poverty and turmoil, there are two poets in their early twenties: Muzaffer Tayyip Uslu and Rustu Onur. They have been carrying tuberculosis germs in their lungs and love of poetry in their hearts for years. Two poets who have the constant habit of making bets on things that they do not own, make a bet on a beautiful girl. They will both write a poem for her and whichever Suzan likes, the other will fade from the scene.. Written by Anonymous

Love is the pretext
26 February 2013 | by sensibelleSee all my reviews

You must definitely see this movie if you want to get lost among the beautiful scenes and poetry of course.

Without hesitating I can say that this is the best movie of Yılmaz Erdoğan. Art for Man's sake. I was very impressed by the movie.

I also would like to congratulate Director of Photography and Art Director. They did an outstanding job. Mert Fırat and Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ in the roles of two poets who died at early ages, performed very well. Friendship of these poets whose only concern is writing poets, is above everything. They spend most of their time together, try to get their poets published, like the same girl, go to the same sanatorium because of the same disease - TB.

Throughout the movie, poet is always in the middle of everything.

I remembered I missed poetry so much. After all, love is the pretext for poetry.
