World Premiere: 2023 Berlinale (Perspektive Deutsches Kino)
"[The] film impresses with its minimalist and precise aesthetics, which emphasize the tension, anger and despair of the characters.Furthermore, the great ensemble is convincing, espacially Rasim Jafarov as Hasan and Merve Aksoy as Zeynep."
Film Rezensionen, Rouven Linnarz
by ENGIN KUNDAG (GER 2023, ´95)
A destructive young woman, Zeynep, is accused of intentionally causing a car accident to harm her boyfriend. She flees from Berlin to her parents' house in the Turkish province, close to a dormant volcano, the Mount Ararat.
With her sexual aggression she turns her parents' deadlocked marriage and an entire society upside down - but not the dormant demons from her past.
