Written and directed by Durul Taylan and Yagmur Taylan, STUCK APART (2021) looks at Aziz, a middle-aged bachelor in Istanbul stuck in a routine from which he wants to escape. Having to share his flat with his sister and brother-in-law who has gone broke and bear with their brat kid, he thinks he has reached the end of his relationship with his girlfriend. He just wants to break free but can’t figure out how. Don’t let the synopsis mislead you into thinking that it’s one of those depressing urban dramas; it is actually a fun-filled account of a man hopelessly out of sync, not because he is somebody special, but because he is your everyday man.
