This award-winning and critically acclaimed film follows the lives of three friends on the verge of adolescence in a remote Turkish mountain village. Struggling variously with deeply felt familiar rage and responsibilities, burgeoning sexuality and guilt-ridden desire, the children find themselves detached from the customs and traditions of their community and consumed by the ennui of daily village life. Featuring remarkable performances from the young cast and stunning visuals, 'Time and Winds' us a hypnotic and beautifully observed portrait of a parochial society, disaffected youth and the end of innocence.
Atmospheric but directionless

This is definitely NOT formulaic. The film is more about atmosphere, mood, shifting seasons and diurnal rhythms. It is centred on the children of a poor rural Turkish village. The parenting is pretty brutal. There is no real plot or direction but there is a sort of movement and although the children are not much in the way of actors they are interesting and despite the poverty it is easy to see their view point.
