6:45pm : Egg ( 2007/97 mins) Dir. Semih Kalannoglu.Following his mother’s death, 37 year old Yusuf, a poet returns to his childhood hometown, which he hadn't visited for years. He finds his ancestral house neglected and crumbling. Upon his arrival, he is received in the house by Ayla, a young girl, who is distantly related to him and had been living with his mother for five years. He had not been aware of her existence, but her presence in the house alleviates the emotions evoked by the death of his mother. Yusuf finds it difficult to cope with the provincial life he had abandoned to go to Istanbul, but at the same time he is re-enchanted by the strained rhythm of the small town. On the day he is due to return to Istanbul, he finds himself obliged to perform the sacrifice his mother had been prevented by death from fulfilling.Awards -Golden Tulip Best Film,Istanbul International Film Festival,2008.

Outside his home in the village, he interacts only with his childhood friend, Mikail. As autumn slowly gives way to winter, Yusuf and Mikail go to a tavern where Yusuf meets Eka, a beautiful Georgian prostitute . Love becomes
a final desperate attempt to grasp life and get over solitude. For a man who has nothing to look forward to, there lurks the bitter deception of a shattered socialist dream.Awards - Special Jury Prize,Locarno Film Festival,2008.

But there is a divide between them.While Mahmut has already adjusted himself to the big city life,Yusuf is yet to get rid of the village lifestyle and he feels lonely in Istanbul, where he becomes nervous and squeamish because of his hygienic habits. Moreover, he is desperate to make a living as he has a sick mother back home and has to support her somehow. How Yusuf bears out of the troubled times and how Mahmut
helps his cousin keep his conscience is what the film is about.Awards - Cannes Film Festival,2003.

Dir.Semih Kaplqanoglu.A high school graduate,Yusuf's passion in life is to write poems. When he is not on his poetic pursuits, he sells milk in the company of his childhood sweetheart,Zehra.

If this is not enough, he finds out that Zehra is carrying on a secret affair with the town's station master. Both his sweetheart's betrayal and the uncertain future that stares at him as he steps into adulthood makes him discontented. Awards - FIFPRESCI Award Istanbul Film Festival.
