| Advanced views in a conservative society
At first glance this Turkish telenovela may seem just another love story routine, but it is later on much more than that. As some reviewer before me already nicely explained, the main plot actually shows how liberal-oriented Sila is fighting the old conservative dogmatic traditions, which are still often used to suppress the unguilty by those in charge. The plot condemns unwillingness to send children to schools, honour killings, meaningless patriarchy, discrimination of women, and so on. While it seemed to me that acting was somehow stiff, it still doesn't deserve such a low rating, especially considering how daring the whole crew who made this piece was. This is an important and advanced work of art for the Turkish culture.
