THREE MONKEYS (WINNER–Best Director) 2008 Cannes Film Festival

Drama,2008,105 min,Turkish (Optional English subtitles),2.35:1,Dolby 5.1,M (Mature themes, violence and coarse language),Nuri Bilge Ceylan,Yavuz Bingol, Hatice Aslan, Rifat Sungar,"It's a film filled with excellent acting, beautifully composed shots, and one or two legitimate storytelling surprises.” The Washington Post "Unpredictable and gratifying, Three Monkeys emerges as a mordant cautionary tale on the contagiousness of corruption. It is rich in atmosphere.” The Los Angeles Times "A film whose every shot seems lifted right off the wall of an art gallery and just as powerfully, if quietly, satisfying.” The Hollywood Reporter,• WINNER – Best Director, 2008 Cannes Film Festival OFFICIAL SELECTION - Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide Film Festivals,After his critically acclaimed mood pieces DISTANT and CLIMATES, Nuri Bilge Ceylan moves in a more plot-driven direction while retaining his mastery of ambience, nuance and astonishing cinematography. Winner of the Best Director prize at the 2008 Cannes Film festival, THREE MONKEYS tells a twisty, noirish tale that opens with an ambitious politician fleeing a hit-and-run accident. Afraid of hurting his election chances, he pays off his chauffeur to take the rap. The film concerns the effects of this devil’s bargain on his family as simmering tensions and sexual intrigue wreak havoc in a household already haunted by hidden ghosts. In the spirit of Buñuel’s THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE and Michael Haneke’s HIDDEN, THREE MONKEYS mounts a caustic critique of the bourgeois family, riddled with hypocrisy yet stubbornly resilient in its seemingly boundless capacity to sidestep guilt and accountability.
