Fakat Müzeyyen Bu Derin Bir Tutku

Muzeyyen My Deepest Desire | Fakat Muzeyyen Bu Derin Bir Tutku | Cigdem Vitrinel | Boston Turkish Film Festival

Arif describes himself as ‘a writer with no published book’. He runs into Müzeyyen at a time when he is trying to figure out women and love. If Arif is sick of women’s endless expectations, Müzeyyen seems to want nothing but to give; if he thinks women always talk about themselves, Müzeyyen says nothing but encourages him to talk instead. Müzeyyen cuts her own hair, doesn’t want to be a ‘nice’ woman and never smiles, flirts or make promises unless she really means it. As he works on finishing his novel, Arif wanders around Müzeyyen’s passionate and mysterious world. At the end of this love-filled journey, she will bring him great sorrow, but also some of the answers he has been looking for so desperately.
