The Secret Face/Gizli Yuz (1991)

Turkey 1991

A young photographer, who works in night clubs and tavernas, brings all the pictures he takes to a mysterious woman. Every morning, for years, she searches for a face in these sad pictures. Finally, a face draws her attention, that of a watchmaker who has strange dreams and visions. Shortly afterwards, the photographer realizes that she has left town, and so has the watchmaker. He begins to search for her fervently, travelling obsessively through forgotten towns and abandoned countrysides.
