Box art for Clair Obscur

Made with the impressive visual mastery writer-director Yesim Ustaoglu is known for, it happily feels a bit less stretched-out and not so cluttered with arty, time-stopping shots that are an end in themselves in some of her movies.

Turkish writer-director Yesim Ustaoglu offers a parallel study of two women--a psychiatrist with a long-time live-in partner and a wife in a conservative, nearly tyrannical household--in this study of the possibilities and limitations that exist for women in Turkey today.
