Once Upon A Time In Anatolia
A slow-burning meditation on the relationships between men and women disguised as an obsessive police procedural, Turkish maestro Nuri Bilge Ceylan's mesmerising **Once Upon A Time In Anatolia** plays out like Andrei Tarkovsky's CSI: Ankara. It is a two-and-a-half-hour epic about a parade of cops and killers trawling the remote hillsides around a rural town, searching for a murder victim's corpse.
