From Palme d’Or winning director Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, Winter Sleep) comes a new tale of modern Turkey.
Sinan (Aydin Dogu Demirkol) is at a crossroads. An aspiring writer, he is forced to return to his parents’ backwater home after graduating. He finds his family in reduced circumstances, with his father’s gambling debts taking a serious toll. But this is a tale of a whole village, with Sinan as our guide, with Ceylan's light touch, witty observational eye and wry humour on full display.
Unhurriedas ever, Ceylan's The Wild Pear Tree is nevertheless a deeply satisfying film that has riches to share about how we choose our path in life.
