Storyline

Why would someone like Leyla go to a high school reunion dinner? And take an overnight train to get there. After all, she hasn't been to a single one for the last 25 years - What is Canan, a student nurse, doing on the train? Reluctantly going to an interview for a nursing job when she would like to be an actress instead. And Yavuz? He spends all day lying by the window watching the passing hawkers, horse carriages and people. He is waiting for Canan, or maybe Leyla, or maybe a executioner and a poet who meet on a train one night.

One-sentence review
2 November 2017 | by nakrugtSee all my reviews

I know this will be a little too early and a little too short.

Nevertheless, here it is for your information:

"The film is basically a bird-eye look towards Anatolia by an urban poet on a train."

Hope this will not undermine the effort put in making of this film.

Photography is phenomenal, acting is so natural that it looks effortless (but obviously an example of mastery).

105 minutes of pure cinematography.
