An interesting insight into the complete collision between 21st Century feminism and out of time traditional customs. I never massively engaged with the film but it's a powerful message and will resonate with many I'd imagine.

The belief that cultures are strict when it conservatively comes to their customs is enforced as an insightful communication in troublesomely delivering a message that love conquers all through the strongly performed, though not entirely united, sisterly bondage while contacting few coming of age turns and embraced by a nice soundtrack and spaciously closeted cinematography. (B+)

A heartbreaking story of sisterhood, childhood innocence robbed, and of forced cultural submission. Beautifully done, of course.

Good movie overall! Slow start but progeessed as went on....think it could of been made more captivating possibly with such good story line and good actors, but, kinda just lacked "something"...ending was good....was excited to see, unfortunately.. was hoping to leave with more of a "feel good heart warming feeling"...than i did...

Best Turkish movie ever made. The most realistic portrait of our country. One of the most touching movies of all the time.

Puntaje Original: 8.0

Definitivamente Mustang nos ofrece una de las películas más hermosas de este 2015, mostrándonos la perspectiva de las más afectadas de esta cultura "tradicionalista" de éstos lugares, y realmente un espíritu inquebrantable y heróico de Lale, que nos conlleva a un magnífico final, definitavamente una película que todos deben ver.

This is one of the films that have been in my to-see list for the longest time. This provides some Turkish cultural education about women and marriage. Moderately entertaining but quite predictable.

you feel for these sisters and really root for their freedom and happiness. it's depressing as hell, but the acting is spot on from an otherwise unknown cast. show this to your sons and daughters and tell them why it matters.

Mustang is a languidly beautiful film that deals with a tough subject in an even handed and subtle way. The story of 5 orphaned sisters in rural Turkey is powerful and beautifully rendered. Their story is an important one and thankfully handled with class and grace and honesty. It shines a light on the treatment of women, or young girls. How they are subjugated to oppression and restriction in the name of conservative religion. There is great empathy here with the characters, who are portrayed wonderfully by a young cast.

The film cleverly balances tones of subdued comedy and flagrant despair while telling an absolutely riveting story about a culture of oppression. Although, I am unsure on whether this stunning cultural portrait is a representation of a common household in rural Turkey, or that of an extremely exaggerated one. Nevertheless, Mustang's particularly timely message was delivered gracefully; alongside its remarkably natural performances, powerful score, and evocative cinematography.

Thoughtful, offers hope despite the dire situation of these girls

4.1 --- An interesting and compelling story. Although it's hard to follow by how slow and vague it is, it's still a pretty stellar film.

Reminded me a little of Sofia Coppola's The Virgin Suicides

Very touching and true.

Certainly a heart-warming film about growing up in rural northern Turkey.

Mustang is a timely, resonant, and touching drama about five sisters struggling to survive in a sexist world, heartened by a glorious young cast.

A stunning, perfect film, filled with beautifully natural performances, poetic photography, a haunting score, an insight into life in rural Turkey, an exploration of feminity, adolescence, sisterhood, patriarchy, oppression, life, the universe and everything. A melancholic joy.
