Our Grand Despair

Synopsis: The peaceful cohabitation of bachelors Ender and Cetin is disrupted when they allow a friend's sister to move in with them. The 30-something longtime friends are overwhelmed by the presence of the uncommunicative Nihal. What possessed them to accept the responsibility of a university student in their home? Especially a girl struggling with the trauma of recently losing her parents in a car accident. But simple daily rituals like sharing meals eventually bring the three roommates together for more pleasant moments. Nihal soon comes out of her depressed shell and the two men discover a vibrant beautiful young woman. Always caring and protective gentlemen, Ender and Cetin are intent on being conscientious guardians. Nihal enjoys discussing literature and poetry with scholarly Ender, and she finds comfort in boisterous Cetin's earthy humor. Nihal is touched by the men's loyal friendship: in a sort of bromance since high school, Ender and Cetin now seem like an old married couple... Before

She shouldn't feel alone.

Or think we don't understand her.

OK, I will.

My brother told me.

- Not much, you? - Nothing.


is Nihal home?

- Yes, why?

Is she with you?

- No, she's in her room.

In her room, good... Listen,

we shouldn't pee standing.

How should we pee?

Into the toilet!

Don't make me yell here,

you deaf asshole.

Our bathroom toilet.

- Yes?

Yes! When we pee standing, it splashes.

It'd be embarrassing

if she saw pee stains.

You're right.

We're real pigs!



We sit and pee from now on.

And the protocol for washing underwear?

As you've become such a gentleman!

Shut the f*ck up!

We'll talk about this later.

Ender and I studied

together in high school.

I mean he used to help me.

He was better at school.

He even passed me the answers

during exams.

Without him, I might not have graduated.

My brother always says

I'm secretly stupid.

Don't say that.

It makes me sad.

You put bergamot in it.

Yes, I did.

So what?

My God!

What a woman Sevgi was!

Why are you blaming Sevgi?

She dumped you but you're

still under her spell.

The wounded lover

still imitating her. Constantly!

Shut your fat mouth!

No more bergamot for you?

Now it's chamomile for your nerves!

And making yogurt at home? Why?

Because Sevgi used to!

Why are you still celebrating Labor Day?

Protesting prisons and stuff?

Wanna hear more?

You wanna hear more?

- Yes.

Unlike you

and all those bourgeois urban asses,

I don't ask the butcher "Do you have meat?"

or the fruit vendor "Do you have apples?"

Get it?

I don't become a clown singing songs

in English in front of women.

I don't get a tattoo in the middle of the
