In the Name of the Law (1952)
Om In the Name of the Law
Deemed “the D.W. Griffith of Turkish Cinema,” Omer Lutfi Akad directs this 1952 film based upon real events that took place in İstanbul, in the following years of World war II. It is about a love triangle that led to homicide. It was a stylistic departure of what otherwise had been typical of Turkish melodramas of the time.
