Turkish director Reha Erdem takes no prisoners with this seriously wigged-out fable of otherness.
Kosmos (Sermet Yesil) arrives stumbling over snowy expanses at a nameless border town.
His first act is to save a boy from drowning, but thereafter his enigmatic character baffles the locals: he seems to be a faith healer, but he's also a petty thief.
His friendship with the boy's sister Neptun (Turku Turan) takes the form of howling and yelping like dogs around one another.
The look of it impresses, though deciphering it is a bit like trying to fold jelly.
