Honey / Bal (2010)

Genre: Drama
Director: Semih Kaplanoglu
Starring: Bora Altas, Erdal Besikcioglu, Tulin Ozen

The quiet life of a boy and his family is endangered when his father does not return home from his work collecting honey in the forest.


Honey, from Semih Kaplanoglu is the third part of his 'Egg, Milk, Honey' trilogy.  It was awarded the Golden Bear at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival and is Turkey's official selection for the 83rd Academy Awards.  A very beautiful and atmospheric story of loss from the vantage point of a young boy.

The fifth shot of the kid playing with some tools is seriously scary. All those lines! The claustrophobia of that shot is amazing.
