Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 144: Sun May 25

Impeccables (2013): Rio Cinema, 9.15pm


This film is screening as part of the London Turkish Film Festival.

Ceşme, an Aegean summer resort in Turkey. May. Two sisters from Istanbul, Lale and Yasemin, are staying here, the playground of their childhood. After 5 years of minimal communication, these two women find themselves once again in the summer cottage of their late grandmother. Initially, everything seems fine: the weather is beautiful, the sea is pristine, and the town harbors the tranquility of the off-season... But the usual dynamics of sibling comfort and irritability come to play. Why are these two city women really here? And why do they gradually turn so emotionally vicious towards each other? Once the burden of devastating secrets are revealed, they have to decide whether this will bring them closer than ever or push them apart forever.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
