- Summaries (3)
Dramatic comedy centered on a group of women who rebel against domestic violence. The film tells the story of psychologist Eylem (Bilgin), who moves into an apartment in the Istanbul neighborhood of Kurtulus after being abandoned by her fiancé two weeks before the wedding. Her new neighbors try to lift the mood transforming themselves into different women who stand up against violence of all kinds.
Meet Vartanus who has devoted her life to her bedridden father; Goncagul who realizes that her Mafioso lover will never marry her. Gulnur who's resigned herself to daily beatings as long as her husband doesn't touch the kids, Tulay who's shattered every time her mother gets beaten; hairdresser Fusun who tends to see things on the bright side. These are the women who transport Eylem, each other and perhaps every woman in the country to Last Stop: Kurtulus. The heroines adopt one unwavering principle: to oppose all forms of violence! A dark comedy that's rose-tinted, provocative and fantastic...
Turkish black comedy in which a female psychologist arrives in a remote region of the country and sets about encouraging the local women to overcome their problems.
