Three Monkeys

Three Monkeys

A family dislocated when small failings blow up into extravagant lies battles against the odds to stay together by covering up the truth when the father, a local politician, convinces his driver to take the wrap for a hit and run accident.  In order to avoid hardship and responsibilities that would otherwise be impossible to endure, the family chooses to ignore the truth. But does playing “Three Monkeys” invalidate the truth of its existence?  Asserting a dry humour and astute psychological insight, some have said this to be a logical expansion to Climates.  Ceylan’s photographic eye is most prevalent.
