Made in 1973, Bride is the first film of Ömer Lütfi Akad’s Bride-Wedding-Blood Money trilogy depicting the immigration problem in Turkey, and holds a special place in the history of Turkish cinema. The film tells the story of a crowded family that has migrated from inner Anatolia to Istanbul in search of better living conditions, losing their values and disintegrating in face of big city life and the system that grinds people down, changes them, and makes them subservient to money and power. The efforts of this big and traditional family of adapting to life in Istanbul are accompanied by dreams of becoming rich. The film pits humane values against the ambition to become rich as it depicts the tragedy of the family, which is great, but humanity wins in the end.
