7.8 / 10 (3271)


One exceptionally arid summer, a scheming tobacco farmer builds a dam to divert the local water to his own property. As the villagers band together to fight him, a love triangle develops between the farmer, his more decent brother, and the beautiful villager the latter takes as his bride.

MUBI's take

Metin Erksan’s Golden Bear-winning melodrama is the first Turkish film ever to win a top prize at a major festival. An intensely stylized, ravishingly sensual tale of violence and greed, Dry Summer portrays the plodding patterns of rural life, and the raging passions that spring from its midst.
