Director: Nuri Bilge Ceylan
See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.
Awarded the Best Director award at this year's Cannes Film Festival, the latest film from Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Climates, MIFF 06), featuring his distinctive visual style, is a taut psychological thriller about a family trying desperately to hold together despite the odds. As small failings blossom into extravagant lies, the past threatens to overwhelm the thin veneer of domestic stability.
“Dealing with the qualities of our inner world, which cannot be formulated rationally, and trying to comprehend it has always been the foremost reason for me in making films.” - filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan
“No one working in cinema today can suggest an interior psychological state, solely through the camera's external observation of an unmoving character, as well as Ceylan can.” - Hollywood Reporter
