A Taste of Turkey
8 October 2016 | by emassey2005-103-428175See all my reviews

Calikusu is a glimpse into Turkish life when the Mullahs controlled civil society.

Similar to Downton Abbey, where the lives of the servants are also reflected, it tells the love story of two cousins.

As an American, I had to overcome my own cultural sensibilities to accept what for us is considered an incestuous relationship. To see it endorsed and encouraged proved a bit difficult for me in trying to appreciate the tale.

It doesn't hurt that the lead actor resembles a young Omar Sharif or George Clooney. The sumptuous landscapes, poetic language,and great acting contribute to a lovely story. The actors' expressions animate their feelings in a realistic manner.

For bellydancers, especially, the music and dancing should resonate, as the show features some belly dancing. The language also fascinates me from a linguistic perspective, noting some similarities to Russian, my college major.
