KOSMOS (12A)

Tuesday 31 July

Director: Reha Erdem. Starring: Sermet Yesil, Türkü Turan, Serkan Keskin, Hakan Altuntas. Turkey/Bulgaria 2010. 122 mins. Turkish with English subtitles.

The sixth feature from acclaimed Turkish director Reha Erdem, KOSMOS is a profoundly imaginative cinematic journey that bursts with philosophical ideas, mystical subplots and some truly surreal moments. Kosmos (Yesil) appears as if from nowhere, on the outskirts of a snow-swept border town, and rescues a local boy from drowning in the river. He is hailed as a miracle-worker and the townsfolk quickly welcome him into their community. But as Kosmos becomes entangled in the lives of the locals, it is less and less clear whether he is a force for good or evil – he performs miracles, climbs trees, smashes shop windows, steals money and engages in a bizarre love affair with a local girl. Meanwhile satellites crash to earth, wild geese roam the streets and troops prepare for war as this singular film builds to its dizzying, surreal climax.
Contains scenes of animal slaughter.
