Basri, 55 year old, every day walks for miles along the tracks working as a railroad watchman. His nagging thought is finding his son. Eighteen years ago, while the boy was studying at the university in Istanbul, the police took him into custody for anti-government activities. Then, he mysteriously disappeared. —Venice International Critics Week
FNC '12 Worthy winner of debut film at Venice, this picture written and directed by Ali Aydin is a strongly scripted tale about a man's perserverance in looking for closure despite coming under the eye of the authorities and his fellow rail workers. Ercan Kesal inhabits the lead role with an authentiicity quite wonderful to behold. Feels about a reel too long losing its antagonist far too early.
