Very dark and moody film with a hint of comedy from Ceylan. Excellent atmosphere, perfect to watch this on a rainy / windy night.

Enjoyable indeed. 8.5/10

Once upon a time in beautiful cinematography and slow-paced lengthy scenes with minimal plot advancement...

Life in a small town is akin to journeying in the middle of the steppes: the sense that "something new and different" will spring up behind every hill, but always unerringly similar, tapering, vanishing or lingering monotonous roads...

"21.8. En voi sanoa nauttivani kaksi ja puoli tuntia pitkästä elokuvasta, jonka ensimmäisen tunnin ajan pimeässä nähtävät valaistusratkaisut näyttävät silmissäni lähinnä äärimmäisen rumilta. Välillä leffassa nähdään hyvää jumittelua ja ajoittain se tempaiseekin mukaansa. Harmi vaan, että aihe itsessään ei myöskään saa minua innostumaan."
