Bliss (2007, Turkey) View trailer below.
Synopsis: Adapted from Zülfü Livaneli’s international best-selling novel, director Abdullah Oguz’s drama is filled with intensity, vivid cultural clash, fine music and some absolutely stunning scenery (the film was shot on the Sea of Marmara). But ultimately it is the figure of Meryem, a young woman struggling to live in a culture that condones the practice of female honour killings, that gives the film its heart. Meryem’s decision to live, and ultimately, to enjoy her life is the quiet revolution that ignites the entire story. Written for the Internet Movie Database.
