CLIMATES (Iklimler)Man was made to be happy for simple reasons and unhappy for even simpler ones - just as he is born for simple reasons and dies for even simpler ones...
Isa and Bahar are two lonely figures dragged through the ever-changing climate of their inner selves in pursuit of a happiness that no longer belongs to them.
An existentialist epic that observes a couple's fractured marriage with an intense, unflinching eye, CLIMATES traces the rocky road of their relationship and follows their travails together over three seasons.
The film begins on a summer holiday in Kas where, out in the sun, at dinner with friends and on a tense motorbike ride, Isa and Bahar quietly impart just how sour the marriage has become (Bahar soon leaves for home - Istanbul - alone). In the rainy autumn Isa encounters a bewitching former lover named Serap.
Finally, in the snowy winter, Isa goes to the mountains to find Bahar on a location shoot (she works in television), and in their reunion there lies the possibility of a détente.
