Masumiyet (Innocence)

Masumiyet ("Innocence") is a 1997 Turkish film by director Zeki Demirkubuz. I like the music. This is a sad movie, grim. It is about Yusuf, who has just been released from his 10 year prison term, sentenced for murdering his married sister's lover and injuring his sister in a way that left her mute. After his release, he looks up his sister and her husband. The sister is regularly beaten by her husband. Yusef moves into a seedy hotel and meets Bekir, a man who has fallen hopelessly in love with Ugur, a nightclub singer and whore who is in turn in love with a multiple murderer serving a life sentence.
