Once Upon A Time In Anatolia

Ahmet Mümtaz Taylan, Firat Tanis, Muhammet Uzuner, Taner Birsel

Movie propaganda

Late one night, an array of men - a police commissioner, a prosecutor, a doctor, a murder suspect and others - pack themselves into three cars and drive through the Anatolian countryside, searching for a body, across serpentine roads and rolling hills. The suspect claims he was drunk and can’t quite remember where the body was buried; field after field, they dig but discover only dirt. As the night draws on, tensions escalate, and individual stories slowly emerge from the weary small talk of the men. Nothing here is simple, and when the body is found, the real questions begin.
