Last Friday, February 22nd at 6 pm the Turkish Movie Club screened the film Aile Arasinda. Students and community members participated and enjoyed popcorn and soft drinks. The Turkish Moive Club is an excellent opportunity for students to enjoy and work on their listening comprehension and gaining cultural knowledge of Turkish cinema.
A film review: Aile Arasinda
The neurotic Fikret and tavern singer Solmaz, whose 21 year long relationships end on the same day, meet through a funny coincidence. When Solmaz’s daughter Zeynep decides to marry her lover from Adana, the ever-fearful Fikret ends up having to play the role of his life. Intended at first to be kept in the family, the wedding becomes a much bigger event upon the insistence of the groom’s relatives. Can our heroes come to terms with the traditional Adana family who carry guns and own a kebab restaurant chain, and see the wedding through without mishaps?
