In Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s latest film, which premiered in Cannes to huge acclaim, Sinan returns from his studies in the city of Çanakkale to his parents’ home in the rural town of Çan. He hopes to publish a book of essays and short stories (what he describes as a “quirky auto-fiction meta-novel”). But his teacher father Idris is an addictive gambler, so much so that his mother and sister have become accustomed to making do without food or electricity. Sinan, worrying that after army service he will be sent to teach in the remote East, wanders around town, visiting his grandparents, encountering old friends, all the while looking for funding for his book.

“Gentle, humane, beautifully made and magnificently acted movie” The Guardian
