Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Cannes film festival Palme d’Or winner is bold and visually impressive. Set in an isolated mountain community in Central Anatolia, the film focuses on Aydin, a wealthy former actor who now runs a hotel. Aydin is feeling the pressure of trying to maintain his relationships with his younger wife and divorcee sister. His interactions with the locals are equally stormy and when a young boy damages Aydin’s car, the community hits breaking point. Winter Sleep displays the director’s remarkable sensitivity to place and how people relate to each other.
