Saw this film yesterday before going to see Ceremony at the Fleece. Film of the year so far I reckon. Directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan it’s a two and a half hour meditation on life & death & shit like the human condition, all centred around a murder investigation. Ultimately though the murder investigation’s pretty irrelevant, it’s the stories that go on around it that keep you mesmerised. Brilliant characterisation, acting & visually stunning it’s also unexpectedly quite funny at times too. Masterly cinema to say the least.
