Pandora's Box - Pandoranin kutusu

Yesim Ustaoglu – Turkey – 2008

CHF 15.90 / EUR 14.80

Two sisters and a brother live in the center of ─░stanbul today. They are in their thirties and forties, and lead very different lives, self centered on their upper-middle class preoccupations. One day, a phone call brings them together on a voyage through Turkey's suburbs and villages to the small town in the Black Sea mountains where they were born. Their aged mother, Nusret, has dissappered. As the siblings start reminiscing about her, the tensions between them quickly become apparent; like a Pandora’s Box which is spilled open, all the unresolved disputes are scattered around. It is only Nesrin's rebellious son Murat who emphatises with Nusret and who ultimately sneaks her out of the institution where her daugters have committed her, leading his grandmother back to her home in the mountains which she is desparate to return to.
