Among films named here (Babam ve oğlum for one, left a big impression), I have also seen less quality films. One of them was 'Organize işler'. Really an empty storyline, and no impressive directory. However, it was good for an evening with friends, as the dvd had dutch subtitles too.

Many tried to pronunce the Dutch word for 'güzellik yarışması', which was the most fun side-effect of that film for me

Quoting Chantal:

I have also seen Babam ve Oglum in Istanbul. My host mom warned me that she knows lots of people who started crying during the film, and she was right.. I couldn't stop myself from having a few tears .


I for one didn't cry during that movie... I disliked the character of the "father", but he cleaned himself after all, so I was very happy at the moment of truth and reconciliation. That was the scene I liked most.
The movie didn't leave a big impression on me, but I'm sure that for Turkish people for whom similar conflicts are very real, it must be a great movie. Overall, I thought it was one of the best Turkish movies, well done.

I want to know any one intrested in Turkish movies and talk about them.


Yes, we are . I find the plots of most Turkish movies to be rather simplistic, devoid of depth and real issues. They mostly talk about superficial, simple problems of daily life - like - someone stole a bike and the village accused the wrong person. Recently I saw a really dumb movie - something about an ice cream seller... Many Turkish movies are this simplistic. They do have a superficial charm though - it gives an illusion that people in Turkey don't have any real problems . Another shallow movie I saw was something about a watermelon seller... at some point in the movie I was literally watching the guy sitting at the stand and reading newspaper... that was the action (there were no customers).
There are some exceptions of course, although I am yet to see a deep, mature Turkish movie. I am planning to watch "Bliss" (Mutluluk) some time soon, which has good reviews, so I am getting my hopes high.
Oh, I need to say that I liked Hamam (about the homosexual guy) - because it dealt with such a taboo issue for Turkish people in such a good way.

I watched Mutluluk a couple of days ago - definitely one of the better Turkish films, well acted and with beautiful images of Istanbul and south-eastern Turkey. I would recommend it
