Mustang (2015)

Movie Review

The film tells the story of five teenage sisters in the care of their grandmother and uncle after their parents die. Their every innocent playfulness, their games and even their clothes are seen by their neighbors and guardians as a sign that the young beauties have gone astray. Who would marry such girls? In her film, Turkish director Deniz Ergüvan raises thorny questions about child marriages, the conservative way girls have to put up with and the clash of civilizations and generations. Interestingly, shortly before starting work on the film, the director found out that she was pregnant. On hearing the news, the lead producer told her that she would no longer work on the film and informed the other team members, claiming that the film would be a disaster. But the crew and the other producers did not go along and the shoot went ahead safely and the film picked up a number of awards, including at the Odessa International Film Festival.
