does anyone know of a turkish film that does not have a love/sexual relationship in it?
every film i have watched so far seems to revolve around this..some are still excellent films but sometimes i get tired of guessing the plots in the first 5 minutes...and yes i'm perfectly aware this problem is not specific to turkish films..

"Uzak" didn't have any of that, to my recollection.

UZAK "Mahmut (Muzzafer Özdemir), a divorced, hermit-like photographer, lets his dopey cousin Yusuf (Mehmet Emin Toprak) live with him for a while in Istanbul while Yusuf looks for a job so he can support his family in their native Turkish village. The distance -- and silence -- between the two lonely, depressed men soon grows to intolerance, on Mahmut's part, of the chaos Yusuf has brought into his life.
Nuri Bilge Ceylan directs this intimate drama."

Güneşe Yolculuk ~ journey to the sun

Mehmet (Newroz Baz), who's moving from western Turkey to Istanbul in hopes of making a better life for himself, crosses paths with Berzan, who's Kurdish. The two form an improbable friendship, so when Mehmet is erroneously labeled a Kurd and thrown in jail, he has a new appreciation for Berzan's hardship. When tragedy strikes and Mehmet must carry his friend's remains to his remote hometown, he learns even more about the Kurds' daily struggles.

i didnt understand that post much better..sorry...i just dont see the need for nudity and sex in every single film when its completely unrelated to the story/plot of the film it would be better if they had none.
