Then Rustu, his condition worsening, is accepted to a distant island sanitarium, where he meets a love of his own (Farah Zeynep Abdullah); further wooing of Suzan is thus surrendered to Muzaffer, whose health soon deteriorates as well.With its lively pace (trimmed for international release from an original running time of 138 minutes), likable performers and lush picture-postcard look, “The Butterfly’s Dream” is to poetry what “Titanic” was to nautical disasters.This long-gestating project for writer-helmer-thesp Yilmaz Erdogan (“Vizontele”), a poet himself, has singlehandedly “made” the reputations of its protagonists nearly 70 years after their deaths (collections of their hitherto obscure work hit the bestseller charts after the film was released in Egypt last year).
I think that he's somewhat phenotypically similar to me. Looks Dalofaelid/Eastcromagnid Nordoid and slight Baltid, rather South Eastern or Eastern European phenotype.
His surname is Turkish, pretty much Turkic Turkish and not a Muslim surname even. There's quite a few Turks of Balkan ancestry like him, mostly they don't necessarily identify as Balkan people living in Turkey but as Turks with a different ethnic origin, sometimes they're unnaware of their ancestry.
The changing of surnames is not unusual in Turkey, they probably did so as part of the assimilation of non-Turks.
