Entelköy Efe Köye Karşı posterEcotopia (Entelköy Efe Köye Karşı)
      2011 | Turkey | Laughs: 1.5 (Light-Hearted) | imdb: 6.7
      who was involved?

A group of Istanbul tree huggers buy ruins in a small village to create an eco-commune. After a brief honeymoon period between the 'hippies' and the locals, friction arises when the villagers support the proposed construction of a coal plant.

This cute romantic comedy didn't really make me laugh, but it brought back memories of people in Turkey who are very dear to my heart and of their own journey with eco-tourism. (Last viewed: December 2018)

Eyyvah Eyvah posterEyyvah Eyvah
      2010 | Turkey | Laughs: 1.2 (Light-Hearted) | imdb: 7.1
      wikipedia | who was involved?

A grown man who lives with his grandparents and earns a living by playing the clarinet at wedding parties becomes infatuated with the nurse-next-door. I was willing to settle for that simple plot and already considering a summary such as "if all you're after is a trip to a sunny land where people have simple problems (at least on film), this may be a good option." But the movie takes a left turn early on, and our man sets off to Istanbul in search of his father.

This is far from being the kind of comedy that will have you roaring with laughter, but it's cute.

In Turkey, the movie was successful enough to warrant a couple sequels as of date. Presumably the romantic quest resumes in the next installment. (Last viewed: December 2018)

Pek Yakinda Coming Soon posterComing Soon (Pek Yakinda)
      2014 | Turkey | Laughs: 1.0 (Light-Hearted) | imdb: 7.6
      who was involved?

A Turkish comedy with an 8-plus rating? I had to watch this.

In order to save his marriage, a man contrives to produce a movie in which his wife stars, unaware of his involvement. This is a light-hearted movie that feels more like a long sitcom than a comedy feature. It's sweet, but it didn't make me laugh, so I'd only recommend it if you're interested in watching it for cultural reasons—which I was. (Last viewed: August 2015)
