Modern master filmmaker Nuri Bilge Celyan’s Palme d’Or winner: an extraordinary, epic drama.

Drama 2014 197 mins

Director: Nuri Bilge Ceylan

Overview

From master filmmaker Nuri Bilge Celyan comes an extraordinary, epic drama that won the Palme d’Or in 2014. With unflinching and fascinating detail, Ceylan’s immersive tale follows a few days in the life of retired actor Aydin and his interactions with the various people in his life, from the guests at his hotel, to the tenants of his nearby flats, his troubled sister and his young, restless wife.

Ceylan’s film offers a forensic examination of the subtle power plays and moral compromises of daily life, in a studied, stately drama that recalls Chekhov and Bergman at their most incisive.
