The Diamond Sea

6.8 / 10 (217)


A free-spirited peddler roams around the forsaken shores of the Bosphorus. She crosses paths with heartbroken teenagers, exorcists and exhibitionists. She mingles with fellow street sellers, fisherwomen, treasure-hunters and garbage collectors, all enclosed in a dreamy microcosm of their own.

MUBI's take

A whimsical exploration of the overlooked lives on the Bosphorus, this black-and-white short film nonchalantly captures the mundane with a deadpan comic touch. Fragmented vignettes from the shore offer an evocative portrait, which neither victimizes nor romanticizes its marginalized subjects.
