Official Selection Cannes, Toronto, New York, London Film Festivals 2018.
Sinan, an aspiring writer, returns home from university to the provincial town of his childhood, set on raising money to publish his first novel. But the situation at home is far from encouraging; his parents’ relationship is on the rocks, and his flamboyant father’s gambling has him deep in debt. Meticulous cinematography and performances are intertwined with complex, philosophical dialogues resonant of writings by Chekhov and Dostoyevsky, to yield a work that is no less than a masterpiece. Gökhan Tiryaki’s breathtaking images, together with the poetic and meditative direction of Turkish master Nuri Bilge Ceylan, make this film an unforgettable experience.
