    the scenes shot the first night are among the most beautiful i have ever seen. the plains and hills, and then the shots in the village. 7 years 10 months ago

    So bizarre when people criticise a film like this for "nothing happening" - did you watch the film? Did you miss the spoiler Yes, it's slow, but I was fascinated throughout. I've not seen any of Ceylan's films before but was interested enough given the high critical praise from all sides. Superb atmospheric night-time cinematography mixed with fully fleshed characters from a different culture and a pinch of black humour. Excellent. 7 years 10 months ago

    Plain beautiful !
    As much as I adore NBC 's work up until now, he really finds a way to add something on top of it with every project.
    Loved it...
