Deniz Gamze Ergüven, France/Germany/Turkey/Qatar 2015, 97 minutes, M violence, sexual references.

In this Turkish drama, director Deniz Gamze Erguven shows, with varying degrees of subtlety, how fear, especially when it's a product of misogyny or xenophobia, can corrode an insular society. Five orphaned sisters revel in nature and their youthful energy until an innocent romp on the beach scandalizes a provincial village neighbor.

The girls' alarmed grandmother and violent uncle quickly hide them from sight and turn the family home into a gated fortress where they prepare the sisters for the domestic drudgery of arranged marriages; faraway Istanbul becomes the beacon of freedom for the youngest child (Gunes Sensoy).

Erguven and cowriter Alice Winocour have a keen understanding of teenage impetuosity and adult cruelty, visually and aurally assisted by David Chizallet's fluid rack-focus cinematography and Warren Ellis's sensuous score. - Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
