Welcome to the New Istanbul. A massive concrete jungle feeding on chaos and hypocrisy; it's inhabitants at the end of their tether. Tahsin is a burnt-out architect suffocated by his existence in this very city. One night, he re-encounters an old friend, Siren; a changed woman who now lives on the remote southern coast of Turkey where she works on an organic farm. Instantly enchanted, he decides to follow her down south. He packs his suitcase, bids angry farewells at work and heads for the airport. Yet, little does he know what a tragicomic odyssey awaits him.Written by
This movie is great if you are looking for something easy to watch and will grip you from the first moment to last. It is most comparable to 'After Hours' by Martin Scorsese. it is a well shot movie, especially the first scene at the bar is brilliant (lighting and pace are both well thought out). All the cast does a brilliant job. The only negative thing that I can say is may be the ending doesn't match the rest of the movie, thats a small problem though. Simply, I would recommend watching this movie. I hope a streaming service already bought the rights.
