Once Upon a Time in Anatolia

Nuri Bilge Ceylan's remarkable film is part police procedural, part metaphysical road movie. Winner of the Grand Prize at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, the film's meditative plot centres around the hunt for the body of a murder victim buried somewhere in rural Anatolia.

Kenan (Firat Tanis) has confessed to the crime, but claims not to remember the exact location of the corpse, and in the course of the ensuing quest the local police, prosecutor and doctor accompany the accused on a long night of insight and lost innocence.

In Turkish with English subtitles.

(2011) Cert: 15
