Turkish Hair Transplantation Is The Subject Of A Spanish Movie
Turkey's international reputation for hair transplantation, which attracts thousands of people to the country, is the subject of the Spanish production "Por Los Pelos", which we can translate as "Because of the hair".
The film is about a group of friends who have hair loss and go to Istanbul to have their hair transplanted. The movie was produced by Warner Bros. We see Spanish director Nacho G. Velila in the director's chair.
The phrase "Turkish Hair Lines", inspired by the national airline company "Turkish Airlines", was featured on the poster of the movie and attracted great attention on social media.
The Movie was Shot in a Real Hair Clinic in Istanbul
Noting that they were warmly welcomed in Turkey, Velila said that Turkey helped a lot in the promotion of the movie, which was released in Europe and Spain.
Explaining how the idea of making a movie about people suffering from hair loss came about, Velila said, “This is always desired. Because a few years ago, only celebrities and football players had hair transplants in Spain.
Now, we see that more and more people are applying for hair transplantation every day. Because before it was considered strange to do this, but not now.
We learned that approximately 4,500 people have hair transplant surgery in Istanbul every year. We think they have stories to tell, and we decided to tell the story of the three of them in this movie.”
We Have Similar Cultures
Stating that there are similarities between the Turkish and Spanish peoples, movie stars Tomas Aguilera and Carlos Librado said, “When we came to Turkey for the shooting of the movie, we got to know the people very well.
We were very surprised and happy to see that there are many things that bind us together. Because we share the same Mediterranean culture, we believe that the perspectives of Spaniards and Turks are quite similar.
These are cultures with similar expressions. Of course, there are many things that are different, but we were quite surprised that the things that bind us together were more than we expected.”
For example, the expression "Inshallah" comes from the Arabic word "ojala" with Andalusian influence. That's why Spanish is one of the few languages that uses this expression.
On the other hand, the famous Spanish actor Antonio Pagudo, who took part in nearly 30 films, said, “I watched Turkish TV series.
By the way, I must say that Turkish dramas are very popular in Spain, but it is very difficult for me to pronounce the names of the actors.”
