Turkish Film Festival: The Wild Pear Tree (Ahlat ağaci)

Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s latest follows a writer who hopes to raise money for a book, but finds his father’s gambling debts get in the way.

Turkish master Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s latest follows a would-be writer’s reluctant return to his native village, spinning an extensive series of conversational encounters into a typically rich, wry, melancholic mood-piece. When university graduate Sinan (Aydin Dogu Demirkol) returns to his parents’ home in the small, coastal town of Çan, he hopes to raise enough money to publish a book of stories inspired by his aversion to the region and its citizens. But his teacher father’s (Murat Cemcir) gambling debts affect not only Sinan’s mother and sister, but also his future as an author.
