TAKVA – A MAN’S FEAR OF GOD
Turkey, Germany 2006, 96 min
Solitary and deeply religious, Muharrem leads a simple life and is devoted to the pious exercises of his Islamic sect. His quiet existence is thrown into turmoil however, when he is promoted to assist with the administrative tasks of his mosque. Forced into contact with new landscapes, people and situations that he is not prepared for, Muharrem begins to fear that he has been abandoned by God.
