This is my "most touching" topic I wanted it to be about movies. Here are the movies I find touching:

1) Ağır Roman

2) Duvara Karşı

3) Babam ve Oğlum

4) Gece, Melek ve Bizim Çocuklar

5) Eşkiya

6) Dedemin İnsanları

7) Canım Kardeşim

 

What do you think about my list. And what are your most touching Turkish movies?

2) Duvara Karşı

 

+1 - It´s the first Turkish movie I´ve watched. Let me add my other two favourite movies:

- "Yaşamın kıyısında", also directed by Fatih Akın.

I watched "Dedemin İnsanları". It was about Turkish - Greek population exchange. The story had been cheerful in the beginning but it got darker after the millitary coup in Turkey and it ended very dramatically. I barely hold myself not to cry.

I have only seen 2 of your list´s films

- the Turkish classic Babam ve Oğlum (My Father and My Son). Everyone I know who has seen this movie has been teary-eyed by the end. I am surprised that you can´t buy it on DVD for a few years now, but luckily I have a copy.

- the German/Turkish classic, Duvarı Karşı (Gegen die Wand) which translates as Against the Wall, but was released as ´Head-On´ in English.

I really enjoyed both these films, and here are 2 other sad films that I think could be added to your list.

Mutluluk (Happiness) - a film about honour killing and (very obviously from it´s title), finding happiness.

Beyaz Melek (White Angel) - a moving film about the quality of life for the elderly, and care for ageing parents.

If I find your other movies Gokuyum, I will try to watch them. Thanks for making this list. Smile

I want to help with a small correction. This sentence is understandable but sounds strange in English. I would say "I barely held back the tears (myself)" or "I could barely hold myself back from crying".

Unfortunately I can´t explain the English grammar reasons for this. {#emotions_dlg.sad}

Thanks Henry. You know I think in Turkish. All my comments are translations of my thoughts. So that is why I do this kind of mistakes.

Now I am curious to know how this (I barely hold myself not to cry) is said in Turkish. This might be something I can use in Turkish conversations later. I am trying to improve my poor Turkish conversational skills, and sometimes mimicking common expressions, and learning phrases can help build confidence.
