Turkish Bath


A slow-moving semi-gay arthouse release. A young Italian architect inherits a building from his deceased aunt in Turkey. He sets off to dispose of the property, leaving his wife in charge of their interior decorating partnership. In Turkey, he decides not to sell the property, which is a Turkish bath, and instead restore it. Along the way he falls in love, which creates complications when his wife comes to visit with some bad news. Although other reviewers have praised this film, I found it rather slow and boring. Your mileage may vary.
Italian with English subtitles, and a bit of Turkish.
