EVET, I DO! (photo © 2008 Luna-Film/Nikolaus & Claudius Ohmann/Cinemendo/RBB/ARTE)

A bridal shop clearance sale is the commonality that connects four couples in pre-wedding turmoil. In their day, nearly 60 years ago, the Turkish shop owners had it easy; their marriage was arranged by their parents. But these days, parents are up against passion and cross-cultural complications: Emrah’s parents expect him to marry a nice Turkish girl. He loves Tim. Kurdish Coskun should not be in love with a Turkish Alawi girl. Dirk’s parents don't want him to convert to Islam. Or are they just scared of him being circumcised? And Salih, he has a green card issue. A good-humored comedy with the advice: Just say “evet”, the Turkish for “yes”.
