Plot summary: The intertwining stories (spanning decades) of an innocent woman found guilty (and jailed for a long prison term) of a murder she didn't commit -- and the mean-spirited man who put her there. Plot highlights: Ayşe (Türkan Şoray) is a poor working widow and mother of two children -- a son and a daughter. When the boss and chief engineer of the factory where she works are killed in a fire, Ayşe is blamed -- and after a speedy trial, she ends up in prison with a life-term for double homicide. (The separation from her children drives her temporarily insane, but in time she recovers -- despite a lingering forlornness.) The real killer is Nazmi (Kenan Pars), who, at the same time as he wants to rob the factory boss, also wants to take revenge on Ayşe for refusing his marriage proposal. After Ayşe's trial, Nazmi leaves the country and makes a fortune in Europe as a businessman -- while Ayşe rots in jail. Many years later Nazmi returns home because of the illness of his daughter, for whom he cares deeply. Ayşe, even at her advanced age, escapes prison and manages to sustain herself as a door-to-door Bread-Seller -- while she tries to locate her long lost (now adult) children. In the process. Ayşe's path crosses Nazmi's again -- with surprising results.
Movie Trivia: The original language of Ekmekçi Kadın (1965) was English, dubbed afterwards into Turkish.

Plot Highlights: Fatma (played by Fatma Girik) is young, beautiful, and a happily married mother of two children -- when her husband Osman (Hamit Yıldırım), an inventive engineer, is killed in a suspicious 'accidental' electrocution at the factory where he works. [The electrical 'accident' has actually been the murderous work of the evil Kenan (Orçun Sonat) who covets Fatma, for himself.] In sympathy with Fatma's predicament, the factory owner Hüseyin Bey (Renan Fosforoğlu) provides security-guard work to the widow, to help her make ends meet. Life goes on sadly, though routinely....except that Fatma's husband's killer, Kenan, keeps pestering her with a marriage proposal -- despite her constant rejection. One day, Kenan delivers a 'secret letter' to Fatma's door, which tells of his plan to get rich quick and take Fatma off with him that night, from a rendezvous point near the factory. When she reads the letter, she discards it disgustedly on the floor -- from where her adolescent son Murat retrieves it, and tucks it away in his toy car. [Ed. Note: Fatma's adolescent daughter Gül, who 'is staying with a relative', is never seen in this movie. We first see Gül (also acted by Fatma Girik) as an adult, much later in the film.] When Fatma doesn't show-up at the rendezvous point according to Kenan's wish that night, he proceeds with his plan anyway... to rob the factory safe and make off with all the cash. When factory-owner Hüseyin Bey catches Kenan in the robbery process, Kenan shoots him dead. Kenan's partner voices squeamishness about Hüseyin Bey's murder, so Kenan murders his partner too -- and then sets fire to the factory with the two dead bodies inside, to cover all his dirty work. Fatma, awakened to her watchman's duty by the gun-shots that killed Hüseyin Bey, runs to the factory where she discovers all that Kenan has done. Kenan tries to persuade her to take flight with him, but when she refuses (and runs off to rescue her son from the fire), Kenan first plants the murder-weapon pistol under Fatma's bed-pillow, then fakes his own death by fire in front of the growing crowd of spectators -- and escapes into the night with a briefcase full of money. Because she can't find Kenan's 'secret letter' (which would corroborate her claims of innocence) Fatma is left in an inexplicable mess -- that leads (over decades) to imprisonment, insanity, recovery, and finally... escape, to a humble life as Bread-Seller Woman (in search of her long lost children). Throughout Fatma's decades-long ordeal, Kenan has lived a life of ever-increasing wealth, style, and influence. But that begins to change when his and Fatma's paths cross once again... The following film clip picks up the action early in the movie, at the moment when Kenan is caught robbing the factory safe by factory owner Hüseyin Bey...

Plot summary: The story of an odd and unworldly sort of man who encounters three big-city girls at a Black Sea beach resort (near Şile) where they are all vacationing. Plot Highlights: In this bizarre sex-comedy of the late 70's, three metropolitan girlfriends go to Şile for vacation and settle into a motel overlooking the beach. When the motel baggage-boy (Mehmet Ezici) begins pestering them, the girls send him packing...though not before he gets an eyeful through the open curtain while the girls strip to change into their holiday duds. On a walk around, the girls find a deserted cove -- and suddenly decide to get naked and enjoy a frolicking skinny-dip. Afterwards, while sunning themselves on the rocks above, they see a strange man (Kazım Kartal) riding a horse along the sandy beach below. Dilber Ay follows the man and persuades him to join up with her friends at the local disco. The unworldly Kazım becomes the girls center of attention. Dilber seduces him, but finds out that he has much to teach her in the art of love-making. Subsequently, like a breeding animal, he sequentially satisfies the other two girls in separate bedroom scenes. Three notable aspects of the film: 1) It contains lengthy disco dance scenes that demonstrate the dance style of 70's, 2) the simulated carnal acts are carried out in a variety of innovative love-making positions (for that era), 3) Ten minutes of this short forty-three minute film are a reprise (near the film's end) of earlier lovemaking scenes. The Kazım Kartal character hardly speaks an intelligible word during the entire film -- and in the final scene we learn that all of the movie's previous action has been a dream of his unworldly imagination.
