(Turkey/France, 2006, 102 minutes)

A selfish, aloof university professor breaks up with his girlfriend but finds out he can’t really live without her. Quiet, moody melodrama where nothing much happens on the surface but a lot happens under it; a "family affair" since the writer-director also stars, along with his wife.
