4.0 out of 5 stars Breaking Up and Making Up, 22 July 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Climates [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
"Climates" is a worthy follow up to the memorable "Uzak" by Turkish director and actor Nuri Bilge Ceylan. Ceylan plays the leading role in "Climates" alongside his real life wife Ebru Ceylan. They play an Istanbul couple whose relationship is slowly breaking up and this drama unfolds over three seasons each with very different climates, hence the title of the film. "Climates" starts off in the summer by the Turkish coast, moves to a rainy Istanbul before concluding in blizzard like conditions in a wintery rural location. The film is slow moving and is full of poignant scenes as it follows the life of Nuri Bilge Ceylan's character over the course of the break up ; from wanting rid of his girlfriend, to discovering the loneliness of the single life to trying to win her back again.The film is mesmerising at times and it is gripping throughout. The acting and direction of "Climates" is excellent as well. This film makes for a refreshing antidote to the deluge of dumbed down Hollywood trash that is on offer in the cinemas at the moment. It is an intelligent, well observed film from a talented director.

Your review provides a good synopsis of the film though I was disappointed with the denouement to 'Climates'.
