A Fair Ground Attraction

Turkey / 113 min / 2007
Direction: Mehmet Eryilmaz
This is the bitter and brief story of two desperate lovers that takes
place on a fairground. The story of Cemal, a layman working at the construction site near the fairground, and of Necla, a wandering chanteuse reciting at the tents of any fairground. Both incapable of settling down. Both living life like a rolling stone, wandering where ever the wind may blow. Although it looks like a fun and magnificent way of life, working on the fairground is certainly not what it seems … Fairgrounds are a cultural heritage that are, like most medieval crafts, leading to near extinction. Consequently creating compulsive and unstable relations between those who are tormented within the process. The film subliminally portrays the decay of the fairgrounds' economic ecosystem, which in turn is the essence of the misery and pain of these two people, who are obsessively in love
