THE WILD PEAR TREE
2018 Nuri Bilge Ceylan 188m Turkey/subtitled Drama
A languid landscape of a film, full of the searchings and dissatisfactions of a young graduate and would be writer, Sinan, returning to his hometown and family’s home. As he travels around the countryside and town he engages various people in tense and at times humorous arguments on topics like literature, religion and love. Seeming like a visual novel, Ceylan takes us on a philosophical journey leaving much to think about. Turkey’s entry to the Academy Awards.
