The new film from leading Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Distant; Climates) follows a group of men — including a police commissioner, a prosecutor, a doctor, and a murder suspect — as they drive through the dark Anatolian countryside. They are searching for a corpse, the victim of a brutal murder. The suspect, who claims he was drunk, cannot remember where he buried the body. As night wears on, details about the murder emerge and the investigators´ own secrets come to light. In the Anatolian steppes, nothing is what it seems; and when the body is found, the real questions begin. Winner of the Grand Prix at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.
"Both beautiful and beautifully observed, with a delicate touch and flashes of humor and horror." - Manohla Dargis, New York Times
