I didn't bother to see this when it was at the cinema as it didn't appeal but I now regret it, excellent acting from the whole cast but especially the youngsters, beautifully told, a must see.
It’s the beginning of the summer. In a village in the north of Turkey, Lale and her four sisters come home from school, innocently playing with boys. The supposed debauchery of their games causes a scandal with unintended consequences. The family home slowly turns into a prison, classes on housework and cooking replace school, and marriages begin to be arranged. The five sisters, driven by the same desire for freedom, fight back against the limits imposed on them.
I completely endorse what Tommy T says in his review - an amazingly insightful depiction of the way in which girls' and womens' physicality and sexuality are feared by men resulting in their imprisonment as wives. It's ultimately more uplifting than than this scenario might lead you to think. Highly recommended.
I watched this film at the cinema and was blown away by the performances from all of the cast and the superb direction of the film- I hardly ever write reviews, but this one definitely deserves a shout out- AMAZING film…………..
