Dilan is a film about inner conflicts, a questioning of moral values in which the characters act and react in very extreme situations. In everyday life extreme events are decisive. In these arid and magnificent Anatolian landscapes, these events become explosive. In Dilan, it is the secret and respressed feelings that explode. They run as wild as a forest fire. Erden Kiral
