A police commissioner, a prosecutor, a doctor, and two murder suspects venture into the Anatolian countryside in search of a dead body whose burial location has been forgotten by the confessed killer. The search proves difficult in the dark landscape of the steppes, while the men discover secrets and hypocrisies about the murder and themselves. The film won the 2011 Grand Jury prize at Cannes. “If the word masterpiece has any use these days, it must apply to the film Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, a mature, philosophically resonant work from Turkey's leading director, 53-year-old Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Climates, Distance, Three Monkeys).” (Toronto Globe and Mail)
