Three Monkeys

Three Monkeys

Synopsis

"The usually unruffled surface of Ceylan’s films is here disturbed by some spectacularly melodramatic plot elements borrowed from the Turkish popular cinema. A conniving politician (co-screenwriter Kesal) pays his salt-of-the-earth driver to take the rap for a hit-and-run accident, then takes advantage of the chauffeur’s absence to conduct an affair with his wife. Brooding on the sidelines is the couple’s unemployed, alienated teenage son.” – MOMA
