Email Alper’s follow up to Frenzy (Special Jury Prize, Venice) is an entrancing fairy tale for adults set in a picturesque village situated between snowy peaks in Anatolia. The story’s background is the disappearing tradition of besleme, whereby country girls are sent to well off city families to serve as both foster children and maids. Following unhappy placements, teenager Havva and older sisters Nurhan and Reyhan have returned to live with their widowed father, Sevket. The patriarch has plans for his children, but these are not the obedient daughters of an old fashioned fairy tale. Beautifully filmed and tinged with magic realism, Alper’s film glows with the power of female strength.
