Synopsis

A typical police procedure, in the hands of Nuri Bilge Ceylan, takes on an atypical and unpredictable course. A murder followed by a confession. The murderer leads an overnight search party to the corpse. As the group traverses through the stark countryside, the killer fails to locate the burial spot. Through the seemingly insignificant conversations, clues are served for an audience willing to play sleuth. Once Upon A Time in Anatolia features a grand climax, an eerily beautiful lanscape and Ceylan’s signature exploration of the human condition.
