**Until I Lose My Breath** (2015) is a Turkish drama film directed by Emine Emel Balcı in her feature debut. The film stars Esme Madra as Serap, a young woman working long hours in a cramped clothing workshop. Serap’s only dream is to move into an apartment with her father, a long-distance truck driver. However, when her father postpones their move, Serap takes matters into her own hands.

The film was praised for its realistic portrayal of working-class life in Turkey, as well as Madra’s powerful performance as Serap. However, some critics found the film to be slow-paced and lacking in focus.

Overall, **Until I Lose My Breath** is a well-made and thought-provoking film that offers a unique glimpse into the lives of ordinary people in Turkey. It is a film that is sure to stay with you long after the credits have rolled.

Here are some excerpts from professional reviews of the film:

* **Variety:** “Emine Emel Balcı’s debut feature is a stark and intimate portrait of a young woman struggling to find her place in the world.”

* **The Hollywood Reporter:** “A powerful and moving film about a young woman’s struggle for independence.”

* **Screen International:** “A beautifully made and emotionally resonant film that deserves to be seen.”

If you are looking for a realistic and thought-provoking film, I highly recommend **Until I Lose My Breath**.
