Movie Info

Kenan is a taciturn 35-year-old tollbooth attendant shuffling between a suffocating home with his ailing but domineering father and the monotony of the traffic-hounded box where he spends his working life. Desperate to resist his father's attempt to marry him off to a neighbor, and equally determined to prove his worth by fixing his father's idle old car, the pressure on Kenan drives him to the edge of a nervous breakdown. Temporarily reassigned to a tollbooth on a desolate country road, Kenan begins a flirtation with a beautiful woman who drives by at the same time each day-in a car remarkably like his father's. Is this salvation for the aging bachelor, or the further unraveling of his mind? -- (C) GFI

Critic Reviews for Toll Booth

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Though speckled here and there with uneasy comedy, "Toll Booth" is a psychological pressure cooker that could blow its lid at any moment.

Pic beautifully exteriorizes Kenan's locked-up fears and agonies.

Top Critic

Both as a character study and modern-day parable, Toll Booth sneaks up on you with its subtle use of repeating motifs and audible cues.

Audience Reviews for Toll Booth

A Turkish drama that definitely had it's moments, but in between those moments were prolonged periods of boredom. Given the subject matter perhaps that was what the filmmakers were going for, but I didn't want to go there with them. Fine performances all around.

A very buttoned down man (nicknamed "robot" by one of his co-workers) begins to, not unbutton, but unravel as his desperate need for approval and acceptance lead him into a life half real and half fantasy with heartbreaking results. Beautiful music, as well.
