The Wild Pear Tree(Ahlat Agaci) Features
The Wild Pear Tree is the latest strikingly crafted work from Nuri Bilge Ceylan, the Palme d’Or–winning Turkish filmmaker behind Once Upon a Time in Anatolia 2011 and Winter Sleep 2014.
The film follows an aspiring young author who returns to his rural hometown after graduation. As he tries to figure out his place in the world, he must deal with his own fears and ambitions, as well as the long shadow cast by his father’s legacy. Ceylan’s film is filled with his trademark rich imagery, warm humanism, and an endearing current of wry humour — it is another triumph from a filmmaker operating at his peak.
