If Love Me's premise is utterly conventional, its execution is surprisingly complex.

Audience Reviews for Sev Beni (Love Me)

In Istanbul, Cemal(Ushan Cakir) is engaged to marry a woman who he does not know well enough to know what her favorite soccer team is.(Seriously, dude?) So, as a sort of extended bachelor party, he accompanies his uncle(Guven Kirac) on one of his occasional party trips to Lviv, Ukraine. While hanging out in a nightclub, it looks like Cemal does get lucky when he is picked up by Sasha(Viktoria Spesivtseva) who had originally been primping for a night with her married lover when he called to cancel. Instead, she takes Cemal back to her place where she punches holes in condoms while he showers. Apparently, things have gotten so bad in Hollywood that we now have to look so far afield as Ukrainian/Turkish co-productions for our romance movie fixes. Regardless, the touching and sweet "Love Me" definitely succeeds on its own terms. And even as warm as the movie can be towards its two flawed lead characters, it never ignores the realities of the setting or the characters' situations, especially as it relates to how the Ukraine is caught in between neighboring countries and the ethically troublesome area of sexual tourism.(Say what you will about the Soviets but they knew how to build a subway.) In general, that extends to any situation where anybody is on somebody else's turf, without realizing what the rules or maybe even the language is.
