In his new film, Nuri Bilge Ceylan takes the direction of his previous work, Winter Sleep (winner of the Palme d’Or), to new heights in a story that focuses on a young man at a crossroads. Sinan, a literature enthusiast, returns home from college to the provincial town of his childhood, set on raising money to publish his first novel. But he finds the situation at home is far from encouraging. Meticulous cinematography and performances are intertwined with complex, philosophical dialogues to yield another extraordinary work from the Turkish master.
Meet on the steps of the Picture House from about 1850. Film starts at 1900.
