It's a realistic poetry of Kazakh steppe, 29 June 2008
Author: leramulina from Russian Federation

Funny, real, reach, sad and inspiring! I was really shocked watching this movie! There are not many movies in Post-Soviet space, which can show us birth of a new creature with such a courage. The delivery scene of the film, which is a culmination of a film is a catharsis creating moment.

The dialogs and monologues are great. I watched the film in Rissian and the dialogs were the brilliant reflection of folksy mind, always practical, straight but magic at the same time. The best monologue of the former sailor, who is the leading star, opens the film.

The scenery is great. The space of a film is very informative. There are many little details that tell us about the steppe life without any words, such as steppe tractor, which is decorated with glued naked women's pictures, radio set, which the shepherd's son always keeps in his hands and many other.

And the message of the film which brings the leading star, who is impetuous and reckless at the beginning of the film, but later on he becomes wiser, is very simple and traditional. You can build castles in the air as long as you want, but to build them on the land you should make many little steps every day. And to reach a goal you should be not only persistent but adaptable and be capable to forgive your nearest and dearest.
