Three Monkeys

Üç maymun

Directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan
Turkey, France, 2008


A conniving politician pays his salt-of-the-earth driver to take the rap for a hit-and-run accident, then takes advantage of the chauffeur’s absence to conduct an affair with his wife. Brooding on the sidelines is the couple’s unemployed, alienated teenage son.

Our take

Winner of the Best Director prize at Cannes, Three Monkeys is another moving, visually unforgettable triumph from the Turkish master Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Winter Sleep). A mesmerizing 21st century noir, which shows Ceylan as the inheritor of Michelangelo Antonioni’s spaces filled with mystery.

Critics reviews

…A hit-and-run follows, but we don’t see the hit—only the run. This is not only a film of slow reveals, but also one whose more dramatic moments happen off-screen. It’s an internal drama propelled by external events, about the consequences of masking over mistakes: Three Monkeys is a kind of anti-thriller, whose opening shot masterfully sets both the tone and theme for what is to come.
