In this feature-length film, which utilises various medias, Nuri Bilge Ceylan depicts a family torn apart by small secrets that turn into big lies, but which tries hopelessly to ignore the truth. The family refuses to see, hear or speak about the truth, just like the fable of the three monkeys.
This is Ceylan’s fifth submission to the Cannes Film Festival competition and his third time competing for the Palm d’Or.
