Mustang (2015) Deniz Gamze Erguven – Movie Reviews



Five orphaned, loving, and seemingly carefree sisters living in a very conservative town in Turkey are growing up fast — so fast that when they’re spotted engaging in a bit of innocent horseplay with some local boys, they’re immediately disciplined, and the home in which they reside takes to locking down the girls, placing a virtual ‘chastity belt’ around the home of bars and high walls, before they go out and bring shame to the family and village they’re in. Their day-to-day existence also changes, whereby their guardians and other local ladies put them through a “wife factory”, showing them how to dress, cook, sew, and other things they should know in order to fetch the first available man through the process of arranged marriage.
