Saniyes Lust

Saniyes Lust

Deutschland 2004, TV-Spielfilm

Inhalt

Suelbiye V. Guenar was no stranger to producer Jost Hering, who produced her second feature film earlier this year, as she had been an intern at his company before going to study at the German Film & Television Academy (dffb) in Berlin.

"Her shorts at the dffb had a particular style and were very committed with an oblique perspective to narrating little situations in life," recalls Hering, who came into contact with the project Saniyes Lust at the Academy′s annual producer pitching.

Originally, they had planned to shoot this film last year, but Guenar was then offered the chance to write and direct Karamuk for Colonia Media, which had its premiere at the Hof Film Days last autumn and received a Special Mention at Créteil in March. Saniyes Lust will be her graduation film proper and centers on a newly married German-Turkish couple where the young Turkish wife is obsessed with the desire to have a baby and believes that a marriage can only be complete with a child.

As Hering points out, the film′s subject is very topical "because it is remarkable how many people are affected by this problem of being unable to have a child. We show what medical possibilities there are and how she risks her marriage to become pregnant," Hering explains. "We were very precise in our research of the fertility clinics, as the film should show what a woman goes through physically and psychologically. It goes as far as her even having a false pregnancy." That doesn′t mean that everything is deadly serious: for example, the film has its comic moments such as when the wife appears at her husband′s workplace to have sex because she thinks this could be the right moment for her to become pregnant. "Suelbiye has a real knack for comedy," Hering observes.

After wrapping Saniyes Lust, Hering also finished production at the end of March on Sommerblitze, a documentary by Nicos Ligouris made with Greek partners on Crete, and was then preparing the shoot for Andreas Struck′s second feature Sugar Orange.
