Cocoon

Turkey, 1995 (MIFF 1995, Fiction)

Director: Nuri Bilge Ceylan

Beautifully shot in black and white, a gentle impressionistic film about the relentless cycle of life beginnings and endings outside and in timeless beauty and the ultimate solitude of the soul. A bit of a breather for the spirit-indulge it for once?
