THE TURKISH PASSION (aka La pasión turca) 

  • Director: Vicente Aranda
  • Genre:Drama
  • Year of production:1994

Desi has everything most young women want, a caring husband, a beautiful home and good friends. A holiday in Turkey with her husband changes her life forever, plunging her into an obsessive love affair with a Turkish guide, a wild sexual adventure, which contrasts starkly with her life at home. Fuelled by a passion within, she gives up everything she has and hands herself over completely to her lover, who, in turn, uses her to achieve his ends in the sordid underworld in which he moves.
