My Prostitute Love

February 10, 1968

My Prostitute Love is a ‘realist melodrama’ that represents the sentiment of 60s’ Istanbul in an authentic way. Poetically written and carefully crafted in cinematography, it juxtaposes the realist imagery of the 60s’ diverse interiors and landscape with the mystical moments of love between a greengrocer and an escort, Halil and Sabiha, that come to life with the impressive performances of Türkan Şoray and İzzet Günay. Still remembered with its memorable dialogues and an insightful use of music, My Prostitute Love presents an oscillation between desire and withdrawal, and a long lasting doubt that pervades the story throughout; yet, it eventually succeeds in creating a rupture in the traditional moralist approach.

The daughters of a miser grocer react to the effort of their father to marry with their grooms that he approves and eventually impose their own desire with the help of the sulfur that comes suddenly from America.
