Critic Reviews for Climates (Iklimler) (The Climate)
Under the guise of the universal theme of love and its mysteries, Ceylan offers a glimpse of harsh and unresolved local particulars.
[Director Ceylan] has created a plaintive work of art in Climates, the story of a mature relationship edging from the stale doldrums of summer to a winter of discontent.
There is an undeniable beauty to some of [director] Ceylan's imagery, but as drama goes, this film is simply too inert for general audience tastes.
As much as I respect Climates, I can sympathize with viewers who will balk at the film's pretensions and glacial pacing.
One of the most perceptive and turbulent love stories in recent memory.
Audience Reviews for Climates (Iklimler) (The Climate)
Ceylan crafts this enthralling story of a collapsing marriage with an enviable use of visuals and sound, but the film is also too thematically ambiguous, leaving us unsure if it wants perhaps to expose Turkish sexism or blame it on a presumed female weakness of attitude and character.
Artsy fartsy, Great premise & beautiful images are not enough to save this film from being vacuous, It lacks enough substance & depth, Not to mention that it follows the same old "men as assholes & women as sweet innocent human beings" cliche
Painfully slow movie shot as a series of beautiful stills (you can tell the director is a photographer) about a dead-end relationship.
