Reviews:
"Ceylan’s synthesis of exterior and interior is typically masterful in the film’s first and final hours, when the characters are frequently defined, or at least heavily informed, by their surroundings. And Bilginer gives a truly towering performance..." - 12/18/2014 A.V. Club


"[T]he signal accomplishment of WINTER SLEEP is that Ceylan’s empathy and technical facility make it palpable in the artistic realm." - 12/19/2014 RogerEbert.com


"Mr. Ceylan performs this particular operation with rigorous solemnity, technical virtuosity and precision tools -- his lapidary visual style rises to the challenge of the natural environment..." - 12/19/2014 New York Times


"Ceylan is precise.....WINTER feels very much like an epic novel, mirroring the pacing and themes of Chekov, whose work was its inspiration." - 01/22/2015 Los Angeles Times


"The film serves not only as a mesmerizing escape into another world, but also a compelling, compassionate deep dive into human frailty and self-deception." - 01/29/2015 Washington Post
