How I Learned to Speak Turkish
(DOWNLOAD)

DIRECTED BY - Therese Shechter

What is IndiePix Download?


How I Learned To Speak Turkish is a funny, personal and twisted travelougue about one woman’s obsession with Turkish men. It’s a journey through cultural clichés, the ‘exotic other’ and the aphrodisiac effects of a potential U.S. visa. It’s also an attempt to understand the Turkish male psyche from the first-person viewpoint of a modern American woman. The inevitable culture clash unfolds against the backdrop of Turkey, a Muslim country where the ‘Mysterious Orient’ meets modern Europe.

this review is from: How I Learned to Speak Turkish (ON DEMAND)

It seems like the main ah-ha moment here is finding out the the Turkish 'sexual secrets' that are driven by the country's religious culture and social norms. It was annoying that I was watching an auto biography-type documentary with the narrator speaking about herself and you never seeing her until the end. Did she get consent from the people in the film to air out their 'closet'?

Careless...
