Wild Pear Tree, The (15)


Turkish drama in which a young man returns to the village where he grew up only to discover that his father is in debt.

The critical consensus

Verbose. Riveting. Extraordinary.

Matt Thrift, Little White Lies, 28/11/2018

Beguiling lyricism with biting social observation about life in contemporary Turkey.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 28/11/2018

Family ties and deep and knotted roots in lengthy pastoral drama.
