Time Out says

An expensive excuse for a love/sex/death porno exercise. Sculptor falls in love with a spoiled rich young thing who is too young and full of sexy life to live, so a brain tumour happens along. Young sexy girls grow up to lose their bloom, and the only way the media mythology can deal with its own limitations is to kill them off while they're still young and beautiful, and use them as an excuse to make a pseudo-philosophical statement about love, life and decay.

Review of MV's review: A sanctimonious excuse for a cheap-shot exercise. Reviewer falls in hate with a foreign film that is too sexually explicit and full of disparate ideas to be considered proper, so a bad write up must happen along. It is difficult to produce a considered attack on a complex film, and the only way to fit a hatchet job into a paragraph is to grossly simplify, and this is achieved here by making a psuedo-scientific statement about media `mythology'. OK, Turkish Delight may not be the best film of all time. But that review is utter sheet.
