This haunted reverie drops us inside an Istanbul retirement home,  where the battle-scarred residents bask in the camera’s attention. They are pranksters, historians, artists and would-be Casanovas. While the residents are in a limbo-like state, outside, ominous construction equipment transforms the land. Special mention at the Locarno Film Festival.
