Turkey. Meh.
Although Marion and I mutually agreed to leave early probably a lot of people like this movie. A bit more ethereal staring into space and a lot less actual story than I care for. Turkey does not have a sterling human rights record vis a vis the Kurds, and this was being referenced pretty strongly. A separatist movement prompted the usual dirty war stuff death squads,  villages cleared out, wounds that will never heal.  The movie depicted none of this, the main characters have an interest in the survivors and their stories. Possibly the Turks themselves get more out of the movie, knowing the references better.
