Directed by: Nuri Bilge Ceylan
Plot: A group of men set out in search of a dead body in the Anatolian steppes.
Quick comment: The cinema of Nuri B.Ceylan is beautiful but requires some patience from the viewer due to its slow pace. A very detailed investigation of a murder is the excuse to disclose the different characters of the people involved – suspects, police officers, doctor and prosecutor. A cynical criticism is used to denounce fragilities in the turkish police and medical procedures.
