Once Upon a Time in Anatolia

GRAND PRIZE OF THE JURY FOR BEST FILM, CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2011

It’s long (two and a half hours). It’s deliberately paced (that is to say, slow). But five-time Palme d’Or nominee Ceylan’s unconventional police procedural — about the search for a body in the Anatolian steppes — is “true, empathetic art… perfect… in its balance of pictorial and humanistic concerns [with] wondrous cinematography… It is not an easy picture. Not many masterpieces are.” (Chicago Tribune) English subtitles
