Tale about East
14 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is a really sweet story about the East. A young girl becomes pregnant, and her father and brother want to find the papa.

Of course, it's not an easy thing, so we can follow them on their long and funny trip.

It's really serious at the start, and it becomes more and more absurd. At the end, when you think it's over, it takes a round, and goes on.

With beautiful scenes, and with a Kusturica-styled humor.
