This superbly photographed film, made with two terrific non-actors, is set in an unheard-of, snowbound Istanbul. The cinema of Nuri Bilge Ceylan is a cinema of small incidents its almost the complete antithesis of mainstream western cinema. And yet the acute behavioural observations and eloquent sight gags drawing on typical problems of cohabitation between Mahmut, a comfortably off, Istanbul-dwelling photographer, and Yusuf, his impoverished and jobless regional cousin have a strong contemporary feel.
