Storyline

Tuya is the persevering wife of Bater, a herdsman who lost his legs exploring water in the Neimenggu (Inner Mongolia) grassland that is fast vanishing as a result of desertification. She takes up the sole responsibility to make a living for the family, but develops a dislocated lumbar from her hard labor and risks paralysis herself. Faced with harsh reality, the couple decide to divorce so that Tuya can seek a better life. Imposing her own conditions of a remarriage - her new husband must take care of Bater, their children and their poor herding land, the strong-minded, stubborn, but also gentle, susceptible Tuya embarks on an arduous search for a new husband, and meets suiters who are rich but disingenuous, likable but shy, and saves a suicidal Bater who still longs for Tuya and their children along the way.

3 September 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

almost documentary. a woman in Inner Mongolia. her family. and her husband. a delicate situation. and one option. nothing else. result - a film about basic things in a isolated space. taste of sand and dust. a silent heroic existence. beauty of images. drops of humor. and sensation of a lot of pictures by strangers. very familiar pictures. a warm feeling, mixture of compassion and curiosity. a border film between testimony and art product. because the story is present in many movies from East. because the place, language or details are only pieces of a large arena.after its end, the flavor of savage beauty remains in memory. more than social postcard, it is trip in forms of human meetings as form of profound happiness.
