This film was last shown on 13 December 2018
Acclaimed Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s latest film is a richly textured, intimate and characteristically dialogue driven mood-piece that follows aspiring writer Sinan (Aydın Doğu Demirkol) as he returns home to the small town where he grew up. Sinan hopes to scrape together enough money to be able to publish his work, but his father’s crippling debts soon thwart his efforts. This gorgeous, slow-burn and deeply humane work is a bittersweet exploration of creative ambition, family and belonging that further confirms Ceylan’s position as one of the most striking, intelligent and empathetic filmmakers working today.
