An Examination on Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Movie “Uzak: The Story of Winner Losers”

Hasan GÜLER.

This study attempts to bring a sociological perspective on the tense relationship between urban and rural life, via Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s movie “Uzak”. The director subtly examines the relationship, typical of capitalist-era modernisation, between an urban resident who has constructed “a sheltered loneliness”, and an unexpected rural guest who becomes involved therein. Via strong characterisation, the work opens a debate on the popular image of rural-urban opposition. Rural life, frustrated and then ignored by modern way of thinking, is nonetheless a reality saturated with capitalism. “Uzak”, with unique, cliché-free language, successfully reflects this.

Key words: Rural, Urban, Modernism, Metropol. JEL Classification: Z00.

Article Language: Turkish English
