Movie Info

This is the directorial debut of Muzaffer Ozdemir, Palme d'Or awarded actor of Uzak / Distant (2002) by Nuri Bilge Ceylan, and also an actor in the Ceylan films Kasaba / The Small Town (1997) and Clouds of May (1999). Dogan, a pessimistic and neurotic architect, falls ill while camping with his friends nearby Istanbul. His doctor advises traveling. Longing for his homeland, Dogan sets off on a short break to the town of his childhood, whence he did not have the opportunity to visit since years. But not even the countryside has escaped the homogenizing concrete web cast by the modern technological age and liberal mentality inimical to the Earth.

The scenery is suitably magnificent, but this well-meaning film scarcely says enough to fill its 75-minute running time.

The story is too vague and episodic, though it is told with sincerity and passion.

It all goes to prove what Thomas Wolfe claimed in the title of his 1940 novel: You Can't Go Home Again.

April 8, 2013 | Full Review…

More of a thoughtful meditation than a narrative feature, this meandering Turkish odyssey is packed with profound issues rather than well-defined characters or plot.

April 5, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Pretty slow going but packs a punch in the end.

An exercise in technique - but not much else.
