25-year-old Sibel lives with her father and sister in a secluded village in the mountains of Turkey's Black Sea region. Sibel is a mute, but she communicates by using the ancestral whistled language of the area. Rejected by her fellow villagers, she relentlessly hunts down a wolf that is said to be prowling in the neighbouring forest, sparking off fears and fantasies among the village women. There she crosses path with a fugitive. Injured, threatening and vulnerable, he is the first one to take a fresh look at her.
The film premiered at the Locarno International Film Festival in August of 2018. See more »
The story takes place in a particular region of Turkey (eastern region of the Black Sea coast) where locals are popularly known to speak in a distinct, heavily accented dialect of Turkish, yet the characters of the movie, locals of this region, speak Turkish without any accent. See more »
An original and fascinating tale with much to love.
Among the many endearing aspects of this movie, one must mention obviously the depiction of a rural society with rules and behaviors so far from ours but beyond that the structure of the story, the visual treatment, the color schemes are very interesting. Whether it is a true representation of the life in a given part of Turkey is not in my view relevant to the interest of the film. The feminist dimension is indeed there, but secondary to the plot.
