Once Upon a Time in Anatolia
Nuri Bilge Ceylan, 2011
What happens when the crime is solved, the killers are caught, but the victim’s body still missing? In this epic and intimate film, which shared the Grand Prix at Cannes, we find out. Three groups of men set out to find a single body in the Turkish countryside over the course of a night. They have one aim, but many purposes. In their search, they encounter darkness and unexpected light, gaiety and sorrow, loss and rebirth. Do they find the body? By the end, that’s beside the point.
