Thessaloniki 49 | Three Monkeys by Nuri Bilğe Ceylan

Three Monkeys / Nuri Bilğe Ceylan

A family dislocated when small failings blow up into extravagant lies, battles against the odds to stay together by covering up the truth... In order to avoid hardship and responsibilities that would otherwise be impossible to endure, the family chooses to ignore the truth, not to see, hear or talk about it. But does playing Three Monkeys invalidate the truth of its existence?
