More plot-driven than his preceding films, Ceylan’s latest is neatly conceived and supported by cinematography and soundtrack of high quality. Intense mood permeates every perfectly composed frame from which the director builds an atmosphere of oppression reflecting the interior discontent of his characters. A former photographer, the director finds shades of colour, tricks of light, and uses of shadow which enhance his story of family tensions in most impressive fashion, meriting him the Best Director Award at Cannes 2008.
