The Wild Pear Tree

The Wild Pear Tree

The latest work by Nuri Bilge Ceylan, one of the Mercury's favourite directors. A writer returns to his village to pull together the money to publish his novel only to be overwhelmed by his family's debts.

The Wild Pear Tree is a formidable work about the role of the artist in contemporary society, youth versus experience, Islam versus secularism and the devaluation of literature in contemporary times.

Palme d'Or nominee.
