Ağır Roman is a 1997 Turkish film directed by Mustafa Altıoklar, adapted from Metin Kaçan’s best selling novel Ağır Roman.
I can say that this movie is one of the best Turkish movies in the 90s knowing that it was nominated for many awards in several film festivals. The story is about a family who’s living in a suburban in Istanbul. Love, family, passion, death, pain are the main themes as well as hope and rage which define the life in this area. People need to fight in order to survive. In the end, the tragic chain of events keeps going on as if in old Greek tragedies.
The soundtrack has music written by Attila Özdemiroğlu,in some songs with the participation of Yusuf Taşkın and one of Cem Karaca.
