Hair | SacDir: Tayfun Pirselimoglu
Hamdi, a wig seller in a run-down district in Istanbul, is lonely. He spends his time, day and night, bored, in his shop, which is also his home. He has cancer but he chain-smokes, staring out of his window at a prostitute standing on the other side of the street. He has no expectations, except perhaps of going somewhere far away before he dies. Brazil is the furthest place he can think of, a paradise with no pain. One day a woman, Meryem, comes to his shop to sell her very long hair... The third part, after “Riza” and “Haze”, of Tayfun Pirselimoglu’s trilogy of films exploring the compulsions of life on the edge.
