Interesting kirghiz movie
26 January 2002 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Maimal is the story of a young Kirghiz who has to go to the army. But before, he would like to have his first sexual experience. The problem is that he looks like a monkey and is shy because of this. Sounds dull ? Maybe if it was an American movie. It would be something like American Pie. But in Kirghiztan, it leads to a touching fable about young Kirghizs. And it's a good way to talk about the problems of this former USSR Republic : alcohol, poverty and so on. Let's say this movie is clever, well acted, well directed and an interesting experience for every movie lovers. Ever seen a kirghiz movie ? Try this one.
