When their housing complex suddenly threatens to collapse, Emad and Rana have to find a place to stay, moving to a nearby shabby apartment owned by one of their acquaintances. One of the apartment rooms is locked and filled with the luggage of the former tenant. This inconvenient displacement and disruption of personal space soon intersects a violent and terrible personal intrusion in their home. In spite of trying to erase what happened, the terrible events break through their minds again and again, and Emad proceeds to find the culprit in a reprisal attempt. At the same time, the couple is playing the lead roles in Arthur Miller's play "Death of a Salesman", and the deterioration of relationships in the play eerily mirrors the breakdown of understanding between the film's characters

So he returns, demanding his old soul back, but there are complications: it's in St. Petersburg. Stolen by soul smugglers, it's been sold on the black market to a vapid Russian soap star. Suddenly thrust into the middle of a twisted black market of international soul trafficking, Paul journeys halfway around the world to reclaim what he'd so readily given away
Kiş uykusu = Winter sleep by Nuri Bilge Ceylan( Visual )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in Turkish and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the picturesque landscape of Cappadocia in Central Anatolia, Winter Sleep focuses on a small village, half-empty, in the wintry off-season. The film follows a local celebrity, Aydin, an actor who runs a small hotel with his wife, writes a column for the local newspaper, and is toying with the idea of producing a book on Turkish theatre. With a steady, penetrating gaze reminiscent of that which Ingmar Bergman brought to his chamber pieces, Ceylan cuts through the smug self-image of a man who considers himself of elevated stature, but is ultimately brought face-to-face with who and what he truly is
