Review: "Doom of Love"

This Turkish melodrama, which ventures into telenovela territory, is saved by its attractive cast and locations. Doom of Love offers a familiar story of twenty-somethings leaving behind a respectable, professional life for something less conventional but more personally and spiritually rewarding. Kuzum, Deniz, and Kirazci are a gorgeous trio, and they make beautiful music. The film floats when they're performing or at soothing meditation retreats, journeying freely in their convertible across stunning scenery, and falling in love. More pedestrian scenes of character development, particularly those involving other family and friends, are clunky, and the twist ending is overly contrived.
