Winter Sleep
Turkish film Winter Sleep, directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan, is set in Cappadocia region. We see the landscape changing through various seasons in the movie - The small hills and barren plains that dominate in the beginning of the film, are completely covered with snow in the second half. While these transformers are shown in the background, the film focuses on its characters - The wealthy, aging hotel owner who was once a stage actor and now a column writer in a local magazine, his young wife who takes great interest in philanthropy, his sister who is a divorcee, members of a poor family who are his tenants, and a few other people with whom he happens to interact.

The narrative mostly contains one to one conversations between various characters. Through these lengthy conversations, the director portrays various forms of conflicts - the rich versus poor, the husband versus wife, and so on. The performances are brilliant, and the remarkable film has made me look for other movies made by the director.
