Synopsis

Üftade has long been the object of men’s fury. In childhood, her stepfather constantly abused her, and later her marriage descends into vicious psychological domination. Throughout the years, her suffering is witnessed by her nephew who feels helpless to do anything about her condition.

MUBI's take

Halit Refiğ captures a timeless innocence in this elegantly wistful Turkish classic, scripted by Ümit Unal. As the film explores a whimsical Yeşilçam-inspired world and a sweet escape from traditional female roles through a child’s gaze, Müjde Ar creates an iconic character.
