Buxton Film have screened a number of Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s exquisite unhurried, award-winning films over the years. In this, his best to date, young graduate Sinan, jobless, returns to his rural village. His idealised childhood memory of home contrasts with the daily irritations he now finds. Are the lives of the people he left behind as hopeless as he feels or simply a projection of his own perceived lack of success? There are some truly memorable scenes in this deeply satisfying, intelligent film.
This film is programmed by Buxton Film and features no trailers.
Director: Nuri Bilge Ceylan
