SYNOPSIS

Hard times come for Onur and Bahar who live in a remote housing complex when Onur is sacked from his job. While Onur detaches from reality and denies his actual situation, Bahar by the time feels abyss in her soul. La Belle Indifférence tells lives of corporate middle class people through a couple in episodic narration. Solitude remains throughout changing climates. Onur and Bahar comes to a threshold about their relationship and we witness their fights, nightmares, absurd memories and situations while their body and soul transform.

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

“La Belle Indifférence designed as second chapter of the housing trilogy after the first chapter My Father’s Wings. This trilogy speaks about the three essential pods of the real estate sector: worker, consumer and builder. After very tragic story of the construction worker Ibrahim we now focus on the life of a good-looking couple who buys a –at from the very same building but in a different narrative style. This trilogy reveals how real estate sector effects dramatically people’s lives from different section of society which is the driving force of Turkish economy in the last 10 years.”
