In the Name of the Law is based upon real events that took place in Istanbul, in the following years of World War II. It is about a love triangle that led to a homicide.
A milestone in Turkish cinema history, Lütfi Ömer Akad’s black-and-white classic inventively portrayed Istanbul’s streets through vigorous tracking shots. Inspired by film noirs of the 1940s, this magnetic crime story also introduced Ayhan Işık, one of the biggest stars of the Yeşilçam era.
