    "Narratively intriguing and confidently made, the second feature from Turkish filmmaker Ali Aydin proves to be a knotty domestic thriller which commands attention right from its striking opening sequence. From that moment... Chronology uses an intimate focus to explore wider issues of patriarchal pressures, cultural constraints and the dark secrets hiding behind the glossiest of doors."

    "Director Ali Aydin‘s second feature is a psychological and dramatic thriller that uses an unconventional narrative structure to shed light on invisible stories."
