[A] beautiful, contemplative, carefully composed movie.

Beautiful images and a poetic sense of yearning are the virtues of this delicate tale.

Yusef's trials feel exquisitely urgent.

Some of the images Kaplanoglu finds are superb: a forest, a mountainside, a rippling, pulsing moon reflected in a pool of water. It is poetic film-making.

Beautifully shot and quietly moving, this is an engaging, if slow moving childhood drama that features the cutest child performance you'll see all year.

The rhythms of the picture are as patient and fluid as other Turkish art films might lead us to expect, but a trickle of anxiety runs through it...

The movie's magic is all in the colour, the landscapes and the sounds - yes, Simon and Garfunkel were right - of silence.

A poignant study of passing innocence.

Total Film

Shot in long, fixed takes and relying on natural light and sounds, this is a beautifully photographed if emotionally muted study of lost innocence.

Filming in long, meticulously sculpted takes, Kaplanoglu is especially good at emphasising elements within the frame with inventive use of focus and the positioning of the camera.

Replete with the artistic style of recent Middle Eastern art house cinema but lacking the substance to truly engage the viewer.

Citybound film aestheticists will suck on their cigs and drone on about the crushing inevitability of despair and the horror of nature unbound. The rest of us think, bummer.

A gorgeously shot, deeply interior portrait of the artist as a young introvert.

A boring, frustratingly sluggish, highly elliptical experience with undeniably picturesque scenery and a sensitive performance by Bora Atlas. It would have worked much better as a short film.

Like the viewer, Mr. Kaplanoglu is quite happy to let nature do the talking and cast a lyrical, mysterious spell.

The tight framing of Kaplanoglu's fixed-camera tableaux and the film's almost supernatural colors lend the scenes a glimmer of deadpan wit, as if they've been intensified and distorted by the prism of memory.
