I love A SIMPLE LOVE STORY because of its simplicity. It’s the first time that I’ve taken my camera out of town and tried to focus on simple, rural relations of the people in a small society. But in the frameworks of these simple relations, love is a taboo. My sixth film depicts an innocent, pure love destined to extermination under the heaviness of traditions.
