Boats Out of Watermelon Rinds

2004 NR

Director Ahmet Ulucay weaves a charming tale about two Turkish boys who take part-time jobs (one sells watermelons; the other assists a barber) to finance their true dream: to build a movie projector and begin illustrious careers as film directors. As their unlikely project progresses, one boy falls hopelessly in love, and both learn a few things about growing up. Ismail Hakki Taslak and Kadir Kaymaz star.
