Vesikali Yarim (1968)
1h 29min · Drama, Romance · 1 January 1968
My Prostitute Love is a 'realist melodrama' that represents the sentiment of 60s' Istanbul in an authentic way. Poetically written and carefully crafted in cinematography, it juxtaposes the realist imagery of the 60s' diverse interiors and landscape with the mystical moments of love between a greengrocer and an escort, Halil and Sabiha, that come to life with the impressive performances of Turkan Soray and Izzet Gunay. Still remembered with its memorable dialogues and an insightful use of music, My Prostitute Love presents an oscillation between desire and withdrawal, and a long lasting doubt that pervades the story throughout; yet, it eventually succeeds in creating a rupture in the traditional moralist approach.
