Winner of more than 30 awards around the globe, including the Grand Prize of the Jury and Best Actor at Cannes in 2003, Uzak is considered one of the best films by the modern day master Nuri Bilge Ceylan. The story is about a photographer living in Istanbul who is disillusioned, both professionally and personally. When his cousin arrives from his village to stay with him, there is a clash of personalities which also reveals what they are made up of, individually.
The film is gorgeously shot by Ceylan himself. Writing for The Guardian Peter Bradshaw said, “It attains a clarity and simplicity that lesser film-makers could strain every sinew trying to achieve without ever getting anywhere.”
