Turkish Films

An HBC contributor has provided some information on Turkish films. They are shown on European television because of the large number of Turks living in Germany. They are useful as costume referance. They appear to be made for the Turish domestic market and seem to be mostly dated to the 1970's. Dating is possible because the boys wear long hair and tight flared trousers. The girls wear short skirts. Our HBC contributor indicated that the quality is mostly dreadful--badly scratched, badly exposed badly acted, dodgy continuity tright plot lines. "I could go on but I find them a fascinating glimpse of the period!" They all seem to be a feature length family soap format with all the usual grandparents uncles, aunts lovers, handsome leading males beautiful ladies, sweet kids--often in smocks. Our HBC contributor has sussed the timing of the start of these films by viewing the text pages that all stations send. Trouble is that the text is not fully compatable with standard English so some letters are figures etc. and it is next to impossible to find the title and rather curiously no credits are rolled at the end.

This Film

I know nothing about this film except that it is a Turkish film, perhaps made about the 1970s or 80s. Turkish boys are pictured in school smocks. The smocks are all styles about the same, although the colors seem a bit different. I know nothing about the plot line of the film. There appear to be several scenes with the boys in their school smocks, but I don;t know if the entire film centers on the school or the boys.
