Kırık Kalpler Bankası (The Bank of Broken Hearts)

Ünlü, Onur 2016

Kırık Kalpler Bankası (The Bank of Broken Hearts) is a film directed by Onur Ünlü in 2016. Ünlü, also the scriptwriter of the film, adapts Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet by shifting the family feud to enmity between two local football teams in İstanbul. The rivalry between Yeşil Takım (Green Team) and Mor Kulüp (Purple Club) emanates from a personal grudge between Yusuf Yağmur (Haluk Bilginer) and Rüstem Tor (Ahmet Mümtaz Taylan), both of whom are acting like football coaches of these teams.
