“Richly contemplative and languid filmmaking.” —BBC
Tension arises when family obligations are tested during an unexpected visit from an unemployed cousin arriving at his kin’s house in a big Turkish city. The two could not be more different—a divorced photographer and a factory man looking for better pay. Both are trapped in solitude, but propelled by the unwavering bond of family roots. Winner of the 2003 Cannes Grand Jury Prize. 2002, 35mm, in Turkish with English subtitles, 110 minutes.
