Directed by Serhat Karaaslan
Produced by Laure Dahout
Late at night in a small Turkish town, a young couple tries to find a hotel room to spend the night together.
I love a story that gives you a glimpse into another culture. The Criminals thrusted me into a situation both familiar and foreign, when university sweethearts risk high crime punishments to seek a midnight rendezvous in Turkey. Director Serhat Karaaslan uses every tool in his arsenal to keep your heart pounding in this social realist thriller.
