On the Princes’ Islands to the south of Istanbul, the days are rainy and full of longing. Poor but proud painter Halil gets a job in one of the island’s villas, where he encounters the photograph of a beautiful woman and falls in love with her image.

Our take

For MUBI’s first-ever restoration project, we are thrilled to present Metin Erksan’s unsung masterwork, an achingly gorgeous love story inspired by Sufi tales. Imbued with a longing for self-actualization amid modern loneliness, this mercurial wonder evokes the fatal idealism of cross-class romance.
