Synopsis & Film Details

“Impeccably made, uncompromising in its implacable vision of the deranging power of love, sex and controlled substances, this savage and staggering film knows how to take our breath away.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

In this Turkish drama, directed by Fatih Akin, a suicidal young woman sets up a marriage of convenience with a forty-year-old addict with the intention to break free from strict familial restrictions; an act that will lead to an outburst of envious love.

Part of the 2005 Fresno Film Festival.
