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, the serpentine roads and rolling hills lit only by the headlights of their cars. They are searching for a corpse, the victim of a brutal murder. As night wears on, details about the murder emerge and the investigators’ own hidden secrets come to light. In the Anatolian steppes, nothing is what it seems; and when the body is found, the real questions begin.
“ANATOLIA is a cop movie and a road movie – but mostly it’s gorgeous cinema.”
– Andrew O’Hehir, Salon
“ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA is, in a word, great.”
– Stephen Holden, The New York Times
“A few days into 2012, and we already have a favorite for the new year’s best movie: Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA.”
– J. Hoberman, Village Voice
“A masterpiece. Gorgeously shot, it’s an absolute must on a big screen.”
– Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine
