A slow-paced (yet never dull) take on the crime epic that is minimal in incident yet rich in subtext. Not just a depiction of the stone-cold reality of searching for a half-buried corpse in the middle of nowhere on the darkest of nights. OUATIA is just as much about the depictions & contrasting characteristics between urban & rural Turkish life, the absurdities of police procedure, the prejudices between the ethnicities, the rapport between the accused & the accuser and the absence of female influence - all of which is anchored by precise direction, stunning photography & beautifully measured performances. The lack of conventional narrative motifs will inevitably make it difficult for some to engage with, but that is ultimately their problem. A fine introduction to the work of Nuri Bilge Ceylan & a superb example of Turkish cinema.

4/5
