Nuri Bilge Ceylan‘s Once Upon a Time in Anatolia evokes a dark atmosphere that is both silently unnerving and enchanting. The even more perplexing short summary can be read as follows (via Cannes):

“Life in a small town is akin to journeying in the middle of the steppes: the sense that “something new and different” will spring up behind every hill, but always unerringly similar, tapering, vanishing or lingering monotonous roads.”

The trailer can be streamed down below:
