Deniz Gamze Ergüven, France, Germany, Turkey, Qatar, 2015, 97’
It’s the beginning of the summer and in a village in the north of Turkey Lale and her four sisters come home from school, innocently playing with boys. The supposed debauchery of their games causes a scandal with unintended consequences. The family home slowly turns into a prison, classes on housework and cooking replace school, and marriages begin to be arranged. The five sisters, driven by the same desire for freedom, fight back against the limits imposed on them. A triumphant debut feature with an important message that masterfully balances its personal and political concerns.
