Uzak

Edition 2003
110' - 2003 - Drama - Dialogue: Turkish
Director: Nuri Bilge Ceylan With: Muzaffer Özdemir, Mehmet Emin Toprak, Zuhal Gencer
A photographer who is haunted by the feeling that the gap between his life and his ideals is growing, finds himself obliged to put up in his apartment a young relative who has left behind his village looking for a job aboard a ship in Istanbul to go abroad. "Ceylan displays a keen visual flair, which allows him to make the most of every setting." (Screendaily). "Uzak" is the best tradition of serious, elegantly made Euro cinema, assembled with pristine professionalism. (Variety).
