Three Monkeys Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In the spirit of Buñuel’s "The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie and Haneke’s Caché," "Three Monkeys" mounts a caustic critique of the bourgeois family, riddled with hypocrisy yet stubbornly resilient in its seemingly boundless capacity to sidestep guilt and accountability. As in his previous films, Ceylan is unsurpassed at evoking both emotional and haunting cityscapes. The wintry vistas of Distant are supplanted here by sweltering seaside summerscapes rife with thundering trains and lowering clouds that portend a day of reckoning repeatedly—but perhaps not endlessly—deferred.
