Three Monkeys (DVD)
Directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan
“Gripping and beautiful! One of the best films you’ll see this year. A masterwork from a director at the top of his game.”
–Bilge Eberi New York Magazine
After his critically acclaimed mood pieces Distant and Climates, leading Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan shifts gears in this twisty, noirish tale while retaining his mastery of ambience, nuance and astonishing cinematography.
Three Monkeys (Üç maymun) opens with an ambitious politician fleeing a hit-and-run accident in the dead of night. Afraid of hurting his election chances, he pays off his chauffeur Eyüp to take the rap. While Eyüp stews in jail, this devil’s bargain takes its toll on his brooding son Ismail and restless wife Hacer, who falls into an illicit affair with the politician. Ismail’s discovery of his mother's infidelity and Eyüp’s post-release suspicions crank up the simmering tensions in a household already haunted by hidden ghosts.
