My own time on holiday in Turkey in the early 1990s was notable for the friendliness of the people. My wife and i were very moved that while sitting by the roadside on a country walk a van stopped, a little girl jumped out and gave us a bunch of grapes before they sped off. We were also invited by a group of workmen to share their evening meal near the hotel. In its films, Turkey has been on something of a roll in the last decade. 9 of these films listed were chosen to represent the country for the auteurs/mubi world cup of 2009. This list is in year order. My favourite is Yumurta/The Egg
I also especially like Climates, Yol, Times and Winds, Honey, Journey to the Sun. Honey won the Berlin Golden Bear in 2010, as did Dry Summer (a Scorsese favourite) back in 1964
