Critique of the Series “Boundless Love”
Renowned Turkish critic Murat Soner has delivered a scathing critique of the “Boundless Love / Hudutsuz Sevda” series, accusing it of propagating violence against women. He specifically pointed to a storyline where the main character, resembling an ISIS terrorist (a banned terrorist organization), kidnaps the female protagonist and takes her to the mountains.
According to Soner, this event marks the culmination of a trend in Turkish series that promotes violence against women. He expressed concern, stating, “For a country with a low level of education, we have entered an extremely dangerous territory.”
P.S. It is worth noting that the victim orchestrated her own abduction and was genuinely happy when the entire commotion, complete with noise and gunfire, ensued as the “kidnappers” came to retrieve her. Thus, the context suggests that the violence depicted is somewhat relative.
