Synopsis

Aydin, a former actor, runs a small hotel in central Anatolia with his young wife Nihal with whom he has a stormy relationship and his sister Necla who is suffering from her recent divorce. In winter as the snow begins to fall, the hotel turns into an inescapable place that fuels their animosities.

Our take

After Once Upon a Time in Anatolia won the Grand Prix, Turkey’s Nuri Bilge Ceylan captivated the Cannes jury once more with this Palme d’Or winner: a rich, Chekhovian drama flush with exquisite beauty.
