Are you a fan of foreign films? Ships was originally released in Turkey under the title “Ferahfeza.” It won awards at the Istanbul Film Festival and the European Film Festival.
The romantic adventure has an artistic and thought provoking vibe to it. With American movies, I often get distracted with other things while I’m watching. Since I am not fluent in Turkish, it takes my full attention to read along with the English subtitles and pay attention to the visuals and the nuances in the inflections of the voices. I enjoy the subtleties and the artistic way in which the film conveys the story.

Synopsis: “Ali spends his time in shipyards and harbors. He works with his father as a ship supplier and they don’t get along well. He half heartedly completes his tasks but in every opportunity, he creates time to think about the nature of coincidences and collect signs that will lead him to a more satisfying life. Everyday, he watches huge ships sail away from the harbour, knowing that they’re not coming back. He dreams about their destinies as he watches them. One special night he climbs up to a tower. As he looks around to see the city from a different angle, he notices a half finished ship graffiti on an abandoned building. Ali immediately realises the significance of this sign. He decides to find the person who made the graffiti. This person will accompany him on his journey to faraway lands.”
