A dowdy university instructor Isa is an inattentive husband to his younger, TV-business wife Bahar. Self-absorbed and selfish, Isa only communicates in the most rudimentary way, while she, similarly, detaches into crying jags and juvenile behavior.

A short, silent, black and white story about life, survival, death; animals, objects, trees; young and old. It is mostly an aggregation of a bunch of good photos which is not surprising for Ceylan, a photographer director.

The film is developed on a university teacher who has unstable relation with women. The film is so valuable for the man and women who don't understand each other. Excellent description of average man and woman behaviors. It shows that there are no reasonable causes of feeling to others depending on his or her character or their behaviors. Scenes are like paintings with human figures. Must be watched with patience and in rest. Lonely people can feel the sense better. The Director's other movies especially "Uzak"/Distant are recommended to feel the atmosphere better. Players, especially the amateur ones (in fact there is no professional one) so successful.
