Movie Info

In the heart of Istanbul's prison, Zakir is in charge of controlling the letters prisoners receive. His average day is spent between the censorship office, his colleagues and his evening writing class. For a writing assignment, he steals a photo from one of the letters, in which appears Selma, an inmate's wife. More than an inspiration, she becomes an obsession for Zakir. He observes her, makes up stories, and imagines the worst to the extent that he puts himself at great risk.


Critic Reviews for Passed by Censor (Gorulmustur)

  • "Passed by Censor" is comparatively meek in relating Zakir's pathology to the wider circumstances that fostered it, and so while it engages as a thriller, it lacks its touchpoints' grainy, subversive vitality.
