This is a 2008 Turkish movie by Nuri Bilge Ceylan (yes I pasted that name in) that I only recently got round to watching on video.

And it was FUCKING AWESOME! Watch this one just for the digital photography - by one Gökhan Tiryaki. True in some parts it can get a bit cheesy, but in others it's drop dead ravishing.

The story is really complicated and you probably have to be Turkish to follow the intricate pattern of obligations and betrayals and serious moping - it's about a guy who does time in gaol because he's paid to take the fall for his boss's idiot son over some road accident. Or something like that. Anyway by the time he gets out he discovers his wife is having an affair and his son is slacking off at college (probably as a result). I don't know, I was mostly watching the pictures. This digital photographyis the best.

Note to myself: Must watch more Turkish stuff! :D
