Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The 1989 Turkish frivolity Arabesk should not be confused with Arabesque, a 1966 American spy thriller. The later film stars two of Turkey's favorite screen personalities, glamorous leading lady Mujde Ar and funnyman Sener Sen. The two fall in love, much to the dismay of their respective families. The couple's attempts at finding true happiness is good for several hilarious and touching moments. Arabesk was a huge hit in its country of origin, just as it was intended to be.
