The second-highest grossing Turkish film of 2011, Love Likes Coincidences is a full-throttle romance in the grand tradition of An Affair to Remember and And Now, My Love. Aspiring actress Deniz (Bilgin) attends an Istanbul exhibition curated by successful photographer Ozgür and recognizes herself as a child in one of the photos. The pair discovers that their destinies have been linked since the time they were born: on the same day, at the same hospital in Ankara. They pursue a romance in spite of Deniz’s possessive fiancé and Ozgür’s heart condition, but fate steps in again. The film’s climax will likely leave you awash in tears, rain, and amazement.
