Three Monkeys

Regarded as Ceylan’s first expansive work where he tackles a larger canvas, in this slow burning thriller the inequalities in Turkish society are exposed as is the inescapable dependency of the poor on the goodwill of the privileged. In order to hide his crime, a wealthy, aspiring politician strikes a bargain with his desperate driver. But later on meeting the driver’s beautiful wife, the driver’s sacrifice has not been enough, and the now failed politician still has more to take from him.
