Based on the tragic “honor killing” of Hatun Aynur Sürücü in Berlin in 2005, the film A REGULAR WOMAN portrays the short life of a free spirited young woman living with an ultra-conservative Turkish Muslim family in Berlin. Aynur escapes the abusive family and struggles to attain independence, only to be shot to death by her youngest brother shortly before she is set to move away.
“A REGULAR WOMAN owes much to its fine cast and impeccable technical package.”
“This is a serious, sympathetic attempt to engage with the life of a woman who, while she rejected her family's strict reading of Islam, loved them too much to entirely break contact.”
