Nuri Bilge Ceylan • Turkey • 2014
Cappadocia, present day. Aydin, a retired actor, runs a small hotel, where he lives with beautiful young wife Nihal and his recently divorced sister. Growingly restless in this provincial region, Nihal busies herself with small philanthropic projects; Aydin, meanwhile, pontificates on moral issues in a weekly column for the local paper. Also a landlord, Aydin encounters friction with a local family—two brothers have failed to pay their rent for many months. As snow begins falling across the picturesque hills, tensions threaten to boil over within Aydin's family and community.
