Winning the Grand Prix at Cannes 2011, Ceylan’s hypnotising crime film follows the search by police, prosecutors, a doctor and the alleged culprit for the body of a man buried in the Anatolian steppes. Starting at dusk and ending the following day, the slow passage of time mirrors the gradual uncovering of the body itself plus new secrets and guilt.
