Someone looking for excitement in a flat and unforgiving world may have found more than they wanted in this drama from Turkey.Tulay is a woman who has recently moved into a new apartment block in Istanbul, which is supposed to provide modern living for middle-class households but whose hard angles and cookie-cutter patterns make it look more like a prison than a home. Tulay is trapped in a failing marriage with an indifferent husband, and she's wondering about what she should do when she walks into her bedroom and gets a surprise -- her housekeeper is aggressively making love with the handsome son of the building's superintendent. Tulay is surprised by her reaction to the incident, and finds herself attracted to the young man. He seems to sense her feelings for her and begins stalking her, but is his passion her real or simply imagined? {#Block C] (aka C Blok) was the first feature film from celebrated Turkish filmmaker Zeki Demirkubuz.
