Under the guise of the universal theme of love and its mysteries, Ceylan offers a glimpse of harsh and unresolved local particulars.

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.

[The] main character spends an inordinate amount of time brooding and staring off into the distance, alternating with scenes of that character's girlfriend brooding and staring off into the distance.

The husband learns nothing, and his monstrous behavior makes the movie relentlessly downbeat.

A stunning film to look at, and to listen to.

The beauty of the Turkish film Climates, a small but indelible masterpiece, is more than skin-deep. No 2006 film meant more to me. It's as sharp and lovely as the best Chekhov short stories.

This is a somber work -- Ceylan's movies have drawn comparisons to Antonioni for their probing of alienation and to Bresson for their unadorned style. But Ceylan has his moments of sly humor.

We realize that this romance, like the beautiful land, is doomed almost inevitably to earthquake fissures, to irreversible change. But rather than making us despondent, Climates leaves us peacefully philosophical.
