“Climates”, or “Iklimler”, directed, written, and staring by Nuri Bilge Ceylan as well as Ebru Ceylan, is a Turkish movie, about an aging, self absorbed professor and his failing relationship with his girlfriend. “Climates” answers the age old movie question; can a movie have nothing happen, have bad actors and a bad script and still have a good movie?

Quick, get the VisineCollapse )
