(Bir Zamanlar Anadolu’da | 2011 | Turkey) dir Nuri Bilge Ceylan w/Muhammet Uzuner, Yilmaz, Taner Birsel [150 min]
In the dead of night, a group of men – among them, a police commissioner, a prosecutor, a doctor, and a murder suspect – drive through the Anatolian countryside. They are searching for a corpse, the victim of a brutal murder. The suspect, who claims he was drunk, can’t remember where he buried the body. As night wears on, details about the murder emerge and the investigator’s own secrets come to light. This beautiful and mysterious new film from acclaimed Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan, won the Grand Prize at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.
“Ceylan creates and sustains an enveloping atmosphere of jocularity, beauty, and dread. There aren’t many movies whose nightscapes continue to acquire surprising nuances of physical and spiritual darkness.” – Wesley Morris, The Boston Globe
