Man is made to be happy for simple reasons and unhappy for even simpler reasons- just as he is born for simple reasons and he dies for even simpler reasons. Isa and Bahar are two people who are alone, carried away by the changing climate of their interior selves in the pursuit of happiness which is no longer theirs.

This film illustrates my way of looking at the relationships between men and women, and not just in Turkish society. I endeavour to point out the minor things, for they often have serious repercussions. For example, when a couple argue, sometimes violently as in the film, they try, perhaps through self-righteousness, to find out who was responsible for the argument. But often, it’s something you can’t work out, it’s an unimportant detail.” Nuri Bilge Ceylan.
