2012 Oscar Foreign Language Film Submissions: ‘Once Upon a Time in Anatolia’

2011 Asia Pacific Screen Awards – Winners Achievement in Cinematography, Achievement in Directing, Jury Grand Prize.
2011 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival – Winner Netpac Award.

The Turkish police force is full of tired, bored, and disgruntled old cops. Driving around with some unreliable crime sucpects in some obscure countryside surely won’t lift their moods. Maybe a really long chit-chat about gloomy past events will cheer them up a bit? No?

My Rating: 5/10
