Küçük Şeyler


Kucuk Seyler

Directed by KIVANÇ SEZER
Cast: Alican Yücesoy, Basak Ozcan, Bülent Emrah Parlak
2019 / 94 min. / with English subtitles

Onur is sacked from his job as manager of a pharmaceutical company. He is not too bothered about being unemployed, but the same cannot be said of his wife, Bahar. Onur doesn’t listen to her and becomes indifferent not only to her anxieties, but also to the world around him. He would rather be surrounded by more zebras. A drama with dashes of absurd comedy about events that are no laughing matter: a personal crisis that impacts their marriage.
