The Wild Pear Tree (2018) (M) (TR) 188 min

Brief Overview

Sinan is passionate about literature and desperate to become a writer. Returning to the village where he was born, he pours his heart and soul into scraping together the money he needs to be published, until his father’s debts catch up with him.

A deeply moving and visually stunning countryside tale of the coinciding destinies of fathers and sons, The Wild Pear Tree is touted to be one of the year’s most accomplished foreign language releases.

The follow-up to acclaimed Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Winter Sleep (recipient of the Palme d’Or – top prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival).

Reviews

“A formidable film… a major statement from a major director.” – Film Comment

★★★★★ “Stunning images… [a] gentle, humane, beautifully made and magnificently acted movie” – The Guardian

“Perceptive and profound. If only more family dramas took such care to get the details right.” – IndieWire

★★★★★ “Sensual and lyrical, tremendously acted… The word visionary has been flogged by the film business to the point of redundancy, but with The Wild Pear Tree, Ceylan reminds us he has earned every letter of it.” – The Telegraph

“His funniest, most politically poignant work yet… achingly personal.” – Village Voice
