There are images of features super-wide format scope. There are views over fields and from the heights. There are ten, fifteen, twenty minutes long walks bristling with thoughtful conversation.
"It's wild like father, like son" is a great film. You will be impressed - and you groaning under the. You get an experience but it has to be given moments when you wonder if it is worth the trouble.
the Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan has become one of the most significant european directors and won the palme d'or in Cannes 2014 for his film ”Hibernating”. In ”The wild growing like father, like son” is, as usual, the director's wife Ebran medmanusförfattare and the city and country is played out again against each other.
the Young Sinan (Aydin Doğu Demirkol) has been at the university and trained as a teacher, when he was returning from Istanbul to his native home. It is a rural area by the sea of Marmara in western Turkey - Ceylan myself grew up in the area. Sinan have their examination papers in front of him. In the baggage he has författardrömmar.

respected in the neighborhood. But he has become a gambling addiction and owes money right and left. The family is destitute. He has the most contempt to spare for this burrow. It prevents him not to get on the local dignitaries, and an established author, in order to get sponsorship and advice on its probably awful literary works ”in The wild like father, like son”.
He drives around in his old neck of the woods. He hits a ungdomsförälskelse to marry an older, wealthier man, and he makes a half-hearted attempt to help the father with a most likely doomed attempt to dig a well.
in the conversations. Of Ceylan, a call start in the most scattered way, and then, without warning, just continue and continue and continue.
The great russians, particularly Anton Chekhov, belongs to the Ceylans role models. In "...like father, like son" is a summons like the one in chekhov's dramas, where the people live as prisoners in the province, cut off from life. The theme is echoed in the stunning photo, of recurring employee Gökhan Tiryaki.
the People are so small, there is much desolation around them. Ceylan started out as a still photographer and bildkompositionen in his films, where the images also undergone much finishing work, is in a class by itself.
and just like talking about Bergmanland you can talk about Ceylanland. You are drawn to the Ceylans films for the environments, people, atmosphere and situations that are just there.
But they can be exhausting. I am Ceylanbeundrare but after having seen ”The wild growing like father, like son”, I wonder if he started to demand too much of its audience. In the example, a twenty minute long conversation between Sinan and the two imams, who discusses religion and how orthodox it should be, has been fully up with reading the subtitles.
In such moments I ask myself how much struggle, a movie should be. "It's wild like father, like son" is a majestic experience at a high price.
