Excellent movie
25 April 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I may recommend this movie for those who has a great enjoy of life. The music in the movie is the music of life. The movie itself shows the truth in the life, the truth which is difficult to correct or let me say, to change. Th life in the deserts like Farkhor is very difficult. I myself spend my life in such conditions. For those who never experienced this life maybe the movie is a bit funny. But for me, I didn't notice any comedy, but rather tragedy. Yes, the tragedy of the usual lie of Tajiks.

The movie is in Tajik/Russian language. However it is written that the movie is in Russian only.

Daler Nazarov is great in choosing composition. Long live Bakhtiyar Khudaynazarov!!!
