  1. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film Three Monkeys

  2. Michael Diers's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    Dramatisches Portrait einer türkischen Kleinfamilie, die durch eigene Unzulänglichkeiten dem Untergang geweiht ist. Tolle Kamera und ein sehr gutes Casting. Film hat jedoch einige Längen, die überwunden werden wollen.

    This is why you never take the traffic blame for anybody.

  6. alphonse's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    Featuring a stunning cinematography and an outstanding sound design, Three Monkeys is another masterwork from the Turkish master that looks into the inside of a poor family when one of its members is arrested, which unfolds a huge, brutal disconnection marked by lies, distrust and silences. Nuri Bilge Ceylan creates a slow, powerful and very well polished family drama that peers into the depths of the human soul.

  8. msmichel's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    Ceylan won the director prize at Cannes in 2008 with this intricately plotted work written by himself Ebru Ceylan and Ercan Kesal. The plot may not be far from film noir archetypes but the characterization elevates this to deeper meaning. The camera work of Gokhan Tiryaki is excellent here with fine use of camera placement, lighting and desaturation of image. Amongst Ceylan's finest works.

  10. güneycan's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    Unlike in Once Upon a Time in Anatolia or Distant, in Three Monkeys, NBC gives the spectator only less space to build her own narrative around the film. Characters are more alive, acting is profuse and details are harvested carefully.

  11. Nathanael Draper's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    A solid film. A simple story, but still engaging. Great staging and performances bring this film to life. All that being said, it is slow in parts. It would benefit from being shorter.

  12. Post Ironic's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    One wants to connect with these characters, but Ceylan seems to veer away from such connection each time it appears about to happen. Sacrifice and forgetting seem prevalent points of reference. Pyschological tension derives from an inability to acknowledge reality. Hatice Aslan puts in a memorable performance in one of Ceylan's less memorable films. Intriguing, but ultimately unfulfilling.

  13. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    For me this is the most weak film of him. Because this story has been written and made film by another palm d'or winner director yilmaz güney in 1971 ''the father'' .some details and characters removed in 3 monkeys. Of course ceylan's photography ,and his visual perception is top level. We can't compare with him güney . But güney is only focusing creating social dramas . Ceylan is focusing creating atmosphere .

  14. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    Great noodled intrigue, with awesome photo and particularly special sound engineering here.

  16. Dogukan4Ever's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    2008, dir. NURİ BİLGE CEYLAN - 7,7/10 (Turkey)

  17. kowalski's rating of the film Three Monkeys

  18. Michael Nisi's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    Beautifully shot despair. Smart storytelling. Except for the somewhat clumsy and unnecessary "we lost a child” sequences. The visit at his grave would have been hint enough and more elegant at that.

  19. suede's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    One can easily see why Ceylan would be called the Turkish heir to Antonioni (esp. if this is already his most action-packed film). Am glad to have seen this and appreciate the complexity of the direction. But I cannot warm to long, silence-filled celebrations of peoples' failures to communicate. // The low-saturation colours that dominate here seem more suited to a noir action shocker.

  20. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    There is so much happening behind and between the pictures; some aspects of the story are told only by means of sound. It's a fascinating way of narrating events which have to do with concealment. The use of light is also fine.

  21. Ale/M's rating of the film Three Monkeys

  22. Enkiled's rating of the film Three Monkeys

    Ceylan's "simplicity" is given by the fact that, unlike many directors that focus all too much on the inner selves of their characters and pamper their wannabe intelectual natures, he takes time to evaluate how the surroundings affect them, he somehow creates a connection between the landscape and his characters and the result is speaking for itself. This is his most action film, given his well known slow paced style
