      Audience Member I definitely found some connection to this story, likely because my own existence straddles the modern & independent Canadian lifestyle and my parents' traditional family-oriented Portuguese culture. The plot took a turn for the bizarrely melodramatic, but otherwise was an appropriately romantic experience of old world values. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member The main character of this movie is in my opinion Istambul, a city that makes you slow down and see a different perspective. Moving and not obvious Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Very good cinematography, beatiful sceneries and interesting plot for a very introspective movie Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member A little movie about sex, coming out, homosexuality and how to fix a Turkish bath using Martha Steward supplies. No, actually it 's a movie about to little of that. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Remember enjoying this. Would like to see it AGAIN and share with others. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A love affair with a city rather than with one another. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
