Storyline

The film A regular woman portrays the fate of Hatun Ayhrun Sürücü, a German woman of Turkish descent, and her struggle for a free, self-determined life in the face of her family's opposition. Her brothers refuse to accept her lifestyle; insults and threats continue to escalate. Finally, the young woman reports her oldest brother to the police. She no longer feels safe at home, so she takes her child and moves in with a female friend. At the same time, the family is trying to find a wife for her brother, her future killer. They manage to discipline the young Turkish woman Melek, played by Evin, into becoming a strict, devout Muslim in the space of a few weeks. She is part of their plan, intended to take in and care for the little boy after Hatun is dead. And then the murder is committed.

A great movie about terrible fate of a woman who leaves islam
15 October 2019 | by medfairSee all my reviews

I went to see it prepared for a standard protest movie, a corny. I left the theater angry, upset, horrified, and also elated. I was angry, horrified, appalled by the incredibly cruel, backward, and woman-hating slant of orthodox Islam. Although the movie follows the fate of Aynoor, the heroine who is murdered by her youngest brother to defend the "honor" of her family, the fate of the whole family follows a Greek tragedy course and curse, the curse of kowtowing to the ruthless, paternalistic religion that makes both the real victim and the perpetrators into victims .In the end, Aynoor dies because of love. She could have moved away, escaped her family. Or she could have actively involved the police in her plight. She did not do it because she loved her family and, despite all the evidence for the opposite, tried again and again to heal the wound between her, her parents, and her siblings. I was also elated because the movie was made so well. Professionally competent, terse, often understated, with excellent acting and directing throughout. And another cause to be elated - criticism of religion and ethnic lifestyles is not PC. The creators of this docudrama decided to take the risk and bring the terrible clash between Western humanistic values and those of immigrant fundamentalist Moslems into the public domain. Lets hope that the movie will prevent another death.
