About This Clip

Murat ile Nazlı (Murat and Nazlı)

Murat ile Nazlı (Murat and Nazlı) is a film directed by Memduh Ün in 1972. Domesticising the play’s setting to the Turkish countryside, the film depicts how a blood feud separates two lovers, performed by Cüneyt Arkın and Fatma Girik, for many years only to re-unite them in their old age. While the use of Leroy Holmes’ instrumental version of Nino Rota’s music in Franco Zeffirelli’s adaptation of Romeo and Juliet (1968) naturally creates a proximity of both Shakespeare’s play and Zeffirelli’s adaptation with Ün’s serious movie, the choice of having a happy ending for Murat ile Nazlı could be considered a Turkish reply that happiness is somehow possible despite the stars.
