Beyond the Hill

Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

Not to be confused with Cristian Mungiu's recent Romanian drama 'Beyond the Hills', this Turkish feature sees a rural family reunited for a night at the old farmstead. It's a striking and unpredictable film, gorgeously photographed and superbly played, but never quite settling into a comfortable style: from the jarring opening shot – think 'Halloween' with cypress trees – it consistently resists categorisation. The result is often off-putting, but occasionally remarkable: one brief scene involving a cold stream and a gang of armed men is almost Lynchian in its intoxicating strangeness.

Written by Tom Huddleston
