- Are you bored?

- No.


Should we give Arif a call?



- Semra, dinner was great. Thanks.

- I hope you enjoyed it.

- How about some coffee?

- How do you take it?

- Medium-sweet for me.

- Me too.

Arif, it must be interesting living


- It's kind of boring actually.

- Why are you living here then?

What else can I do?

The weather's great

but that's about it.

If there were a few more people

like us around...

Why don't you come down

more often?

Actually this is the first time

we've been away in years.

Bahar has that TV series.

The schedule's always up in the air.

And I have the university, you know.

I'm free in summer

but then Bahar is usually busy.

What's your job on the series,


Art director.

Is that the one with Ugur Ycel?

No, that's a different series.

There are no big names in ours.

It's getting cold.

- Aren't you cold?

- No, I'm fine.

- Why don't you put your jacket on?

- I told you, I'm fine.

You seem kind of fed up.

What's wrong?

What's going on?

Is there a problem?

Why are you using that tone?

Why do you keep nagging?

If I am nagging, it's for your own

good, isn't it?

If I was cold,

I'd be wearing the thing anyway.

Can't we go anywhere

without you making problems?

Hey, come on!

Don't go over the top.

Don't worry.

They enjoy seeing us miserable.

Come on.

You wrecked dinner, then...

No. It's OK. Don't worry.

Hey, come on, guys!

Just forget it.

So you can hear the waves

all the way up here.

- Is that the sea just down there?

- Yes, it's right there.

- Just behind those trees?

- Yes.

Kas has got so big.

I came here back in 1977.

There was nothing here then.

It's tourism. The Germans started

coming. So then...

- I worked as a waiter here.

- Really?

Shall we go for a swim?

What, now?

- Yes.

- You'll freeze.

Are you crazy? For God's sake!

Where do you get these ideas?

Why not if you want. But...

Forget it. It would be bad for

Isa's neck.

It's late.

Let's have our coffee and get going.

Semra, where's the coffee?

- You can stay here if you like.

- No, it's OK. The hotel's fine.

- Are you comfortable there?

- Yes.

I love you.

What's up?

You're covered in sweat.

I must have fallen asleep.

You shouldn't be sleeping in the

sun. It's really dangerous.


I want to say something,

but please don't get the wrong idea.

Maybe we should go

our own ways for a bit.

What do you think?

We'd still be good friends. I mean, it

wouldn't change things a lot.

We'd still go out together,

go out for dinner, go to the movies.

We don't have to be friends.

I don't mind.

Come on, Bahar.

Don't be like that for God's sake.

This would be better for you as well.

Even that meaningless "Serap"

incident has screwed you up.

You call it meaningless?

For God's sake,

don't get started on that again.

It's better that way for you as well.

You know it yourself.

You don't have to worry about me.

I'll be fine.

That's what I mean.

You're young. You're attractive...

You can get all the men you want.

Maybe it's true what you said.

Maybe I am too old for you.

The age difference

really has become a problem.

It just isn't working.

We can't seem to get along.

I don't need convincing, you know.

I agree with you.

I'm not trying to convince you,

just to point out the facts.

You know I'm right.

Are you crazy?

Are you trying to kill us both?

If you're that keen to die,

shall I throw you off?

- Shall I throw you off?

- Get off me!

Get off me!

Come back here.


Come back!

F***ing hell!

Your baggage receipt.

Don't lose it.
