Aydin, a former actor, runs a small hotel in central Anatolia with his young wife Nihal with whom he has a stormy relationship and his sister Necla who is suffering from her recent divorce. In winter as the snow begins to fall, the hotel turns into a shelter but also an inescapable place that fuels their animosities.
Nuri Bilge Ceylan has gained a reputation as one of the most innovative and accomplished filmmakers of the early twenty-first century. WINTER SLEEP, winner of the prestigious Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, is a magnificent addition to his growing filmography. Following on the success of ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA, Ceylan has made a multi-faceted work that is in many ways a departure from its predecessor. (...) Controlled and spare while using its length to its advantage, WINTER SLEEP is compelling, hypnotic, and absolutely deadly in its aim. (Piers Handling)
