Clair Obscur is available in: Turkish on Netflix Canada
Turkish writer-director Yesim Ustaoglu offers a parallel study of two women — a psychiatrist with a long-time live-in partner and a wife in a conservative, nearly tyrannical household — in this study of the possibilities and limitations that exist for women in Turkey today.
On the other side, there is a life of a woman, psychiatrist, who enjoys her life, who is an extremely open-minded woman with a modern understanding life, as it is. She has no problem to enjoy her sex life, with one guy or more men, she is some kind of a realistic hedonist. Mature, free, not so religious, creative figure of witty person, who does not obey any unnecessary laws. She creates her own life like she likes it. She understand homosexuality, trans-people, and all possible psychical problems of modern generation. It is contrast with girl tightened with a huge rope of her emotions, religion and reality of becoming a woman, not a child.
Both of them have problems. It seems they are not so different?
Tensions is here
What is at the end? 🙂
