TOPAL ŞÜKRAN'IN MACERALARI

THE ADVENTURES OF SUKRAN THE LAME

Onur Ünlü
Turkey, 2019, 80 Min

Sukran's story begins with an accident, and now she will have to master her still young life with a stiff leg. But she doesn't let this get her down, dreaming of love, physical closeness and a feeling of security. However, something is constantly getting in her way. Or someone is standing in her way. 

She is always unlucky. But that's not all: anyone getting too close to her has an accident - sometimes a fatal one. At times, she foresees the misfortune, and then there are other times when she has a hand in making it happen. There are no hurdles for her on the way to happiness. Will she find what she is looking for?

A coming-of-age story staged as a brightly coloured fairytale without dialogue, cheeky and subversive, yet sarcastic and morbid at the same time. The film succeeds in delivering a virtuoso handling of light and shadow, intimacy and depth, and a soundscape that foreshadows some events and yet constantly breaks with the audience's expectations.
