Much more Bergman than Ozu, Bresson, or Tarkovsky (Ceylan’s favorite filmmakers, by favorite films). Folks bickering at home.
Disconcerting ending, and disconcerting that the sister character disappears from the film halfway through. That which characters cannot handle goes away. Theme is giving not what others actually want or need but what oneself selfishly wants or needs to feel one is giving.
Lots of taking.
