The new film from Reha Erdem, Turkish cinema's great maverick movie-maker and director of "Times and Winds" and "Kosmos," is an existential thriller with touches of magic realism. 17 years old Jin is on the run through dangerous forest and mountain regions. She has chosen to rebel in order to live but both man and nature conspire to make her journey a treacherous one. The riveting juxtaposition of beauty and savagery is just one of the film's ambiguities, but when they combine in the final sequence the effect is truly breathtaking.
