And yes, so many beautiful people. I also fast forwarded a lot of scene where they became frustrating for me. It stayed with me for days after. The tasteful love scenes and modest dress were such a gift. Like a lot a lot.
Fell in love with Suleiman and Hurrem. He encountered a woman and she had no coat so he gave her his coat. I am now dreaming in the Turkish language. I guarantee you will not forget the actor, Kivanc Tatlitug and his forehead kisses. Need to read English version of books. Against the wishes of their families, the lovers flee together and make a dangerous journey across frozen wastelands to seek sanctuary in Istanbul during the last days of the Ottoman Empire where they must fight for their love against the forces of family, the expectations of society and the events of history.
The story begins during World War I. I think if she had know the whole story things would have been different between them. I stop for scenes with Seyit, Sura and Seyit and Sura only now O am really stopping to watch Kivanc and Farah!! The only thing is, would it be more seasonally appropriate to watch in winter? Perhaps that explains why he was not so vindictive towards Petro and the Baroness, as both of them were Russian but not Turk Russians. Despite the flaws I just love this story so much and would love to see those two actors opposite one another again in another love story. Would love to know more about the his grand daughter the author. A few days later Ginger wrote saying that she had finished Kurt Seyit and Sura in about 4 or 5 days and had already re-watched parts of it.
Now targets of the ruling Bolsheviks, Seyit and Sura, along with some 200,000 other refugees, fled across the Black Sea to Instanbul, Turkey. Coupled with occasional random cartoon sound effects and extremely pink lipstick.

So happy there is another soul out there that loves historical pieces as much as me. I never thought you would be replaced one day.
What he did to Sura was unthinkable, but in his heart he had to keep his promise to his father and marry a Turkish woman. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wishes something worth watching! Love Seyit, perfect for this role…his family came off so authentic; members of my family escaped from the Bolsheviks and fled to Germany and then to America. He is welcome to come to America and make movies here. It could probably be an entire podcast discussion too. When a storyline began to consume my thoughts, the words made their way to my laptop and Tree of Life was born—along with a love of writing.
But the costuming in the entire show is on point. I loved hating the bad guys especially Azhe. Some of the show will feel a little quirky to audiences used to American and British shows. Another great performance by Kivanc is a small but powerful part in Ezel. In 1918, the Ottoman government negotiated a surrender to the British. Based on the time period, it is very likely that my grandfather and the real Kurt Seyt had known each other and worked together.
I have seen this show through to the end several times and each time I keep finding more interesting facts and intrigue than before. Liked by Netflix, well done, like other viewers I fell in love with the story, the characters and the acting was superb. At first I felt her sister was very hard on her , but if you watch to the end you can see that Valentina read his character perfectly, as did the Baroness admittedly jealous, but nonetheless she knew him intimately who tried to warn Sura. Perhaps had we seen a distance with his new wife and a real struggle it would have been easier to swallow. Seyit was breathtaking but he annoyed me to no end sometimes as did Şura. I have seen it twice and have never before been drawn so intensely to watching a dramatic series.
I agree with everything you said above. They were almost whispering to my ears. But the music and cinematography are wonderful. The cinematography is excellent and I do agree about the hair and makeup, which is much too contemporary. But the romance is absurdly over the top. Eventually, the musical soundtrack gets a bit annoying, but if you like period dramas and a good love story, you will overlook the obvious lower quality tones of the series. The actors, costumes, scenery was wonderful and I fell in love with the haunting music that I purchased the sound track.
