Director: Faruk Aksoy
The narrative suddenly jumps to the fifteenth century. When Sultan Muhammad al-Fatih was 12, his father Murad II installed him on the throne. He learns of his father’s passing while in charge of the Sanjak of Saruhan. This causes him a great deal of sorrow and lays the path for his return to the throne following the passing of his brother Fathl IV. Sultan Mehmet was likewise 12 years old when he initially rose to the throne. Because of his intense sadness over the loss of his beloved son Mohamed, Murad II abdicated the throne. He installed Mehmet after becoming smothered by the political animosity of his margraves and viziers.
This position dissatisfied Grand Vizier Halil Pasha, who had significant power over the Janissaries and the state. Sultan Mehmet’s assertion that the conquering of Constantinople is necessary particularly disturbed him. In anticipation of the potential of Crusaders using Mehmet as a pawn to capture Ottoman territory, he had Sultan Murat inherit the throne once more. Mehmet was exiled to the Sanjak of Saruhan after being removed from the throne.

18. Heartsong (2022)
Director: Soner Caner
A fun and pleasant film, you continue to watch it and your smile never leaves you. The hero excelled in the performance of his part and was affected by his features and the expressions in his eyes when he was sad, happy, or joking. The sound effects, music, and staging were wonderful, the result is that it is an enjoyable and cheerful job and you won’t regret watching it. Perfect scenes, great music, and good acting. At first, the work is beautiful and tasteful, no matter what opinions are on it you should look at it because it has attained the most important purpose in art, which is enjoyment.
Director: Andaç Haznedaroğlu
A beautiful film with a sentimental, but poignant story. Warm enough to tug at your heart during a time when love and kindness are welcomed and needed. The scenery is almost as spectacular as the music. It left me feeling somehow hopeful. I am so happy to have experienced the pure joy shared at the close of this special movie. The child in this movie is beyond amazing. All this takes place in Turkey, the streets, the plaza, and the city in general. Personally, two things stand out, the music, and the young girl with very red hair. Ouzlem is outstanding and steals your heart, and this is her first credit in movies. The other actors are just as good. The premise was predictable and it was sentimental, but the acting, and music, were excellent. It was a sweet and heartfelt movie. I was instantly in love with the characters.
20. Grudge (2021)
Director: Türkan Derya
Grudge is a Turkish thriller directed by Turkan Derya. This is the story of a police chief who was involved in a deadly incident before his promotion. He discovers a hateful conspiracy that threatens his associates. Unfortunately, even if the plot is convincing, the script weakens a little toward the end. The major turning point is somehow predictable and does not manage to gain ground. It’s as if the writer was trying to give us a little piece of paper as a clue but ended up letting us down the whole thing involuntarily. But on the bright side, Grudge has a way with a solid set. All the actors play their characters that reinforce and animate the story, give it justice and make everything intriguing to the end.
21. Last Summer (2021)
Director: Ozan Açıktan
Director Ozan Aciktan is interested in the way Deniz falls in love with Asli, an attractive young woman. reflects their desire for what they see as the confidence and sensations of adulthood. While accompanying Asli and her friends to a cliff, Deniz watches as he jumps into the sea. Even if he survives the dive, the cut he receives on his foot is a sign that, although he is growing up is exhilarating, he is not without pain. The attention of the film about Deniz’s growing pains is useful because Asli, a charming but misty character, meets a charming old man, and Deniz’s shy desire takes a jealous turn. Tension increases on sunny days and humid nights. Asli’s feelings seem to change on a whim, and Deniz is not affected by it.
22. Paper Lives (2021)
Director: Can Ulkay
An excellent film showing a hidden side of modern Turkey through the eyes of the main character who runs a recycling plant. He is going to die unless he gets a kidney transplant and at the top of his wish list is his lifelong desire to find his mother. Given morphine for the pain, he often enters into a semi-delusional state. He finds an abandoned child and adopts him, enjoying his happiest times. This movie is full of intense scenes which will make you feel like you are in there. It has an amazing and interesting climax something unpredictable. It made me think of those kids or people in general, who had been abandoned and physically abused by their parents and how that experience would impact their lives tremendously as they age it’s a great movie.
23. Godspeed (2022)
Director: Mehmet Ada Öztekin
A film that excites you every step of the way. I’m still not over the scary, unexpected ending. A happy end, but behind this end lie truths and traumas that one can only overcome if one makes the ultimate sacrifice. A masterful performance. Engin Akyurek was Salih from the ground up. Each glance, each line brings a drop of the tragedy that will reveal itself to the end. The trauma of war, the bond between the two comrades in arms, the promises made that need to be fulfilled. The consequences of war on all lives are so good and reasonably rendered, without force, without useless violence. A story that we can learn from.
24. Doom of Love (2022)
Director: Hilal Saral
A mediocre romantic drama. Come to think of it, this movie reminds me of The Titanic. if you love that one, you can like this as well. Following the bankruptcy of her advertising agency, an indebted Firat falls for a singer at a yoga retreat and accompanies her on a self-fulfilling journey. It was pleasant to navigate through this movie with the beautiful chemistry between the actors until halfway down the road and then you realize that whatever you do in life is safe even if you follow your dreams. The second half was a bad screenplay, it could have been better. Everyone should understand what is the real difference between doing something as a priority & secondly doing something which makes you happy.
25. Cute & Dangerous (2015)
Director: Reyhan Pekar, Özcan Deniz
This movie is everything you want: humor, drama, emotions, and action. I cried at the end, heartwarming the film is. The story is incredible, the actors are fantastic, and Ayca excelled in her role as she did in Karagul. The story is an inverted fairy tale as opposed to the usual fairy tale. The set was beautifully selected for sleep or poverty and a full society is portrayed. It is a place where thieves live, help each other, feed themselves, and help children. It represents everything that happens in our society where nothing is real, where what we are experiencing may not be true, and possibly a lie that we are experiencing.
26. Cici (2022)
Director: Berkun Oya
I especially admire the director’s narrative when he points out verbal violence in families. In addition, it is striking to see how the brain handles guilt. For me, the film claims something Domestic violence exists, it is not just physical as some believe. Patriarchal father figures and maternal instincts have just crossed paths Repressed emotions always find a way to be revealed. Trauma, which means being hurt mentally, sometimes requires our attention. A family that emigrated from the village to the city after a painful loss finds in their old house around 30 years. Didn’t exactly catch on and delivered a Berkun movie. The terrain is perfect and reminded me of my childhood and I love the images which could relate to it. The actor is performing perfectly.
27. In Good Hands (2022)
This movie was amazing. It had me think outside of the box about family and life. And it was relatable in all aspects of life. I do wish there was more explanation in some parts but overall it was a great movie. This story is all about a Girl’s true Love, Loving the one without terms and conditions. But situations don’t remain the same for everyone. Loved the relationship between a single mom and her son. They truly created beautiful moments and memories together. Also the story of true love, despite what happened to her didn’t have any bitterness or angst. That perhaps is what love and compassion are. All actors acted so beautifully. It will make you cry! But in the end, you will find life and love different from what you have been thinking about ever! It turns on some lights in your heart emotionally and effectively.
28. Have You Ever Seen Fireflies? (2021)
Director: Andaç Haznedaroğlu
The Ecem Erkek is excellent. This is mainly because the movie is based on a play, which was a great success at its time. However, the movie has no intention of being better than the part or replacing it. It is simply a piece in its own right, which should be considered on its own merits and not based on the original piece. I experienced this story too, and it was treated gently and lovingly. I also loved the ending, sweet and lovely.
29. Don’t Leave (2022)
Director: Ozan Açıktan
At first glance, a relationship may seem almost perfect, two people loving each other a lot, enjoying each other, and living together. At the same time, one of the partners in the relationship dies slowly, and the killer is the other partner. The main character Semih has a great love for Defne. But he wants all the advantages of a relationship and at the same time, he doesn’t want to be tied to a relationship. When Defne’s grandma dies, instead of being there for her, he comes up with excuses for not being there for her. He’s not even showing up for the funeral. The movie shows us how he has been ignoring all the signs that something was wrong with the relationship and that the breakup between Semih and, Defne.. Their relationship has come to an end.
30. Love Tactics (2022)
Director: Emre Kabakusak
This movie was fun, light, sensual, incited excitement in me, and was oh so playful and ever so romantic with all the romantic cliches with their little twist. The best part was how romantic and exciting this movie was, there was never a dull moment that I felt throughout watching the movie. There was no heavy negative drama or fights that went down, the movie did not spiral into sour drama or any other sort of charade that goes down often in love movies to give them substance or to spice up the romance with something other than also interesting. light, romantic, and sensual to watch. It’s a nice romantic movie a happy fun type of movie. I just loved and enjoyed watching it.
