In the Cannes hit Climates, Nuri Bilge Ceylan gets his Ingmar Bergman on in a film about isolation and relationship dysfunction. The Turkish film director stars as a self-centered college professor who’s going through the motions with his girlfriend, played by the director’s real-life wife. She’s a younger member of a TV crew who has problems communicating. Their bond breaks during a summer vacation, but it becomes clear that it’s been frayed for quite some time. After the split, she moves across the country; he hooks up with an old lover (in a disturbing sex scene that’s not what it seems). Eventually, the couple reunites at a resort in a frigid middle-of-nowhere -- which brings the film’s seasonal connection full circle.
