Uzak ihtimal

(Wrong Rosary)

Turkish Movie Nights: Best film ~ International Film Festival of Rotterdam 2009

Poster art for Uzak Ihtimal (Wrong Rosary)Istanbul is a rare city, where great ancient cultures still affect the lives of modern citizens, and where religious life co-exists with secular society. Wrong Rosary follows a love story that could only take place in a city like Istanbul.
 
Musa, a young muezzin (the man who calls the faithful to prayer at a mosque) finds himself drawn to Clara, who lives in his apartment building and who, crucially, is a Catholic nun. Musa also meets an antiquarian bookseller, Yakup, who has a connection to Clara. As the lives of these three people intersect, director Mahmut Fazıl Coşkun plays down the melodrama and emphasizes the depth of the relationships that the characters have with each other, and with the intriguing city of Istanbul itself.
