A richly engrossing and ravishingly beautiful magnum opus

Ceylan has given us a rich portrait of modern despair, a culture in transition and a man truly seeing himself, perhaps for the first time.
-Betsy Sharkey, The LA Times
Winter Sleep is beautiful to look at and to listen to, wonderfully acted and fully engrossing.
-indieWIRE
Oeuvre pleine de maturité et de maîtrise
-Odile Tremblay, Le Devoir
Il est clair que l'oeuvre est majeure
-Marc-André Lussier, La Presse
