Nuri Bilge Ceylan ('Winter's Sleep', 'Three Monkeys') returns this week with 'The Wild Pear Tree' - now showing in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema. Rediscover the police procedural thriller that won him the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes in 2001.
An existential investigation into a local murder sends police, suspect and prosecutor into the Turkish countryside at night in search of a body. What seems comical at first, with the killer unable to identify the exact location of his victim, soon becomes a more troubling investigation into what drives each of us to commit acts that may exist far beyond normal behaviour.
