A love story in the wild
12 June 2010 | by (Grenoble, France) – See all my reviews

This is a piece of the lives of nomadic people that could exist right now, in the vastness of Asia. This movie treats the condition of women in a world where men live one day at a time, most of the time working, or drinking. The main character, Témür, an outsider, falls in love with a married woman, who wants nothing more than leaving this life of submission. It's a break from modern society, you have the feeling of having gone back a few hundred years, they live with the bare minimum, and the landscapes are candy for the eyes through the whole movie. In the end, it was beautiful, I wasn't bored, but I believe the experience wasn't as complete as I expected it to be, it really only is a tiny piece of unusual lives. One of those movie that you don't think, but feel.
