The Palme d’Or winner is set in the hilly landscape of Cappadocia in Central Anatolia, where the local celebrity, a former actor Aydin, owns a small hotel cut into the hillside. It’s now winter and the off – season. Aydin runs the hotel with his younger wife Nihal, writes a column for the local newspaper, and is playing with the idea of producing a book on Turkish theatre. He has also inherited local properties from his father, but leaves the business of rent collection to his agent. When a local boy, resentful of his father’s humiliation at the hands of the agent, throws a stone at a jeep whilst Aydin and his agent are driving in it, Aydin ducks out of any responsibility or involvement. As the film progresses, the cocoon in which the self-satisfied and insular man has wrapped himself is gradually unraveled. In a series of magnificent set pieces, the film takes a close look at Aydin’s interactions with his wife, his recently divorced sister, and the family of the stone-throwing boy. Aydin is finally brought face-to-face with who and what he truly is.
