Winner of the Grand Prize at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, Once Upon a Time in Anatolia is the new film from Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Distant, Climate). In the dead of night, a group of men – among them, a police commissioner, a prosecutor, a doctor and a murder suspect – drive through the Anatolian countryside. They are searching for a corpse, the victim of a brutal murder. The suspect, who claims he was drunk, can’t remember where he buried the body. As night wears on, details about the murder emerge and the investigators’ own secrets come to light. In the Anatolian steppes nothing is what it seems; and when the body is found, the real questions begin.
