Story of a forbidden love in the shadows of 1 dark secret
14 September 2018 | by banuyilmaz714See all my reviews

The film started out as the story of a young girl, meets the love of her life and try to change her ordinary life with an extraodnary one. At one point; the love story reveals the secrets lies beneath it. Unsolved mystery convince you to watch the movie till the end, you start growing an accelarting curiosity to solve the family mystery with deep compassion for the unlucky characters. The only negativity worth mention to is you are not informed about "a long dark secret" through the first half of the film until than it's just a story about a forbidden and infamous love. It could be a bit more attractive If the audince was informed about the secret since it is feeding an exciting curiostity. And it was an awesome move to give a space for Dogan's thoughs near the very suprising and confusing end! It was unexpected yet just right thing to do!
