His cinema, with a deep humanist essence, has become a faithful contemporary and extemporaneous portrait of his country, with capital titles that have the smell and weight of the great novels of the 20th century. Since his first short films, practically all of his filmography has been selected at Cannes, where he won the Palme d’Or with Winter Sleep and previously the awards for best direction, FIPRESCI and the Grand Prix of the Jury.
