As in his superb Distant (2003), this marital drama from Turkey's Nuri Bilge Ceylan centers on a narcissistic photographer and his failed relationships. Here Ceylan casts himself in the main role and his real-life wife Ebru as his on-screen spouse, in a story about the corrosive effects of domination and neglect. One day on a beach the two decide to part, and soon he takes up with his former mistress. Their torrid sex scene, resembling a rape more than lovemaking, is clearly about his need to control, an obsession he feeds by tracking down his wife just when she has her life back on track. The husband learns nothing, and his monstrous behavior makes the movie relentlessly downbeat. No one, including the viewer, achieves catharsis. In Turkish with subtitles. 101 min.
