A great film - wonderful mood and character study, 26 January 2007
Author: vandenbu from United States

This film, beautiful to see, was a wonderful character study. Slow, but that was part of the charm. Perhaps Bergman inspired some of it. But this was better than Bergman as far as I was concerned. I think it dealt with changing gender relations in current modernizing Turkey as well-- in ways that were not at all simplistic. The metaphor of the seasons behind the narrative is compelling, but does not dominate. The women's characters were well drawn. In some ways, the woman we expect to be the most independent is not completely so. The woman who does achieve independence is remarkably feminine at the same time. So good, I had to see it again. It didn't lose anything at all on second viewing.
