An extract on #yol

The film is a portrait of Turkey in the aftermath of the 1980 Turkish coup d'tat: its people and its authorities are shown via the stories of five prisoners given a week's home leave. The film has caused much controversy in Turkey, and was banned until 1999. However, it won numerous honours, including the Palme d'Or at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival.

In Turkey, several prisoners are granted furlough. One, Seyit Ali (Tark Akan) travels to his house and finds that his wife (erif Sezer) has betrayed him and works as a prostitute. She was caught by her family and held captive for Seyit Ali to end her life in an honor killing. Though apparently determined at first, he changes his mind when his wife starts to freeze while travelling in the snow. Despite his efforts to keep her alive, he eventually fails. His wife's death relieves Seyit Ali from family pressure. Another prisoner, Mehmet Salih (Halil Ergn) has been arrested for his role in a heist with his brother-in-law, whom he abandoned as he was being shot by police. His in-laws have disowned him, and he is finally forced to tell his wife Emine (Meral Orhonsay) the truth. Emine and Mehmet Salih decide to run away on a train. On the train, they are caught in the washroom having sex. They are saved from an angry mob by the train's officers and held in a cabin before being handed over to officials. There, a young boy from Emine's family who boarded the train shoots both Mehmet Salih and Emine. mer (Necmettin obanolu) returns to his village sitting near the border between Turkey and Syria, and arranges to cross the border to escape prison. mer finds his village in a battle between Kurdish smugglers and Turkish soldiers. Though mer is clearly determined, he gives up after his brother, who took part in the battle, is shot dead. Through his brother's death, mer has inherited the responsibilities of his brother's wife and children as dictated by tradition.

Gney wrote the screenplay, which contained elaborate detail, but could not personally direct as he was in prison. Gney initially recruited Erden Kiral as his surrogate director, but displeased with Kiral's work, had it destroyed and fired him. This became the basis of Kiral's later film, Yolda. Gney subsequently hired Serif Gren. There were rumours that several prisoners, including Gney, watched much of Gren's footage on a wall at the prison. Gney later broke out of prison to edit Yol in Switzerland. Zulfu Livaneli made the musics of the movie, but due to political atmosphere then in Turkey, he used a nickname Sebastian Argol in order to avoid from possible sanctions from Turkish courts which were then operating under 1980 Turkish coup d'tat.
