LADY WINSLEY (2019)

A film by  Hiner Saleem

Cast:  Mehmet Kurtulus, Ezgi Mola, Senay Gürler

Following the murder of an American author on a small island in Istanbul, an inspector arrives. In this small family community, his investigation and methods will arouse resistance and reveal family secrets …

Hiner Saleem, born in Iraqi Kurdistan, fled the regime of Saddam Hussein when he was seventeen. Refugee in Italy, where he studied at the university, he then moved to France. The twelve feature films he made were often financed by European co-productions. later Hiner Saleem opted for the thriller, transposing its action in the small island of Buyukada, near Istanbul. The choice of shooting on the island in the winter gave the story a fell of a thriller crime atmosphere with tension. Do not get me wrong about this brilliant and elegant film that is reminiscent of the universe of Agatha Christie. Saleem said in an interview he wanted to do a thriller my way, so he put in some comedy into it plus the fact that is a bit off beat. Because during the difficult investigation conducted by the inspector Fergane finds out secrets, and that the local corrupt commissioner is going to slow him down. Mehmet Kurtulus incarnate his character exceptionally well. What I like about it it not a hollywood production he has actors from all walk of life not all good looking and thin. It is more realistic that way. Lady Winsley is a breath of fresh air for a Director whose work has so far been rather confidential.
