Video & On Demand - Winter Sleep (Blu Ray, DVD, VOD)
He has also inherited local properties from his father, but leaves the business of rent collection to his agent. When a local boy, resentful of his father’s humiliation at the hands of the agent, throws a stone at a jeep whilst Aydin and his agent are driving in it, Aydin ducks out of any responsibility or involvement.
As the film progresses, the cocoon in which the self-satisfied and insular man has wrapped himself is gradually unravelled . In a series of magnificent set pieces, the film takes a close look at Aydin's interactions with his wife, his recently divorced sister, and the family of the stone-throwing boy.
Aydin is finally brought face-to-face with who and what he truly is.
The DVD and the Blu-ray both have as an extra a 2 hour 20 minute making of.
The DVD is a 2 disc edition.
