Humane empathy carries the story along, and occasional spectacular moments when the film steps out of the bedroom raise the hope that Çelik gets the chance to work on a wider scale soon.
Ilyas Salman as Damat and Dilan Aksüt as Gelin both give nuanced performances that invite our sympathy without recourse to easy pathos.
Two great performances hold together Reis Celik's slow-moving study of child brides ...
Treating what could be a deeply distasteful subject with subtlety and restraint, Reis Çelik's intimate two-hander explores a fraught situation with sympathy and unexpected revelations ...
The ambiguity of how the drama plays out only enhances the fascination of this intimate, intense but always discreet dissection of antiquated patriarchal custom.
The colours are so vivid you ache to reach out and touch them). It's also painfully funny and full of surprises.
By anybody's standards, this is tough and exposing territory, which makes it all the more impressive that Celik's human-inventions remain as luminously secretive as folklore.
This is an elegant and cerebral piece of work, but finally a little subdued, and perhaps doesn't measure up to the expectations of the opening 10 minutes.
Intensely gripping, unpredictable and emotionally engaging, thanks to an intelligent script, striking cinematography and terrifically convincing performances from its two main leads.
