Dry Summer
(Susuz Yaz)

by Metin ERKSAN

DrySummer

Speaking about Turkish cinema above all means rediscovering the pleasure of cinema as an art, a place where all novelistic and, more broadly, narrative influences come to meet. The films of Metin Erksan, who now works for Turkish television, were the epitome of this. At the intersection of melodrama, tragedy, realism and psychologism (more sensual than cerebral, intuitive). Time to Love […] or Dry Summer (quite aptly presented as “the story of man’s possession of water and women”) attest to an unwavering pleasure of storytelling”.

(Frédéric Sabouraud, Cahiers du cinéma no.404, February 1988, Festival des 3 Continents “Panorama of Turkish Cinema”)
