About Dry Grasses (15)
Samet is sitting out his four years mandatory service in a remote village school – he’d rather be in Istanbul – with bad grace and sarcasm. When the authorities find a letter to him written by a pupil with whom he has been friendly, the situation blows out of proportion. Samet’s rivalry with his more attractive colleague and housemate Kenan and his friendship with co-teacher Nuray run in parallel. Playing out like a story by Chekhov, it’s absorbing, thoughtful and infused with black humour.
