I watched this movie as a part of film festival, and I am glad that I did.
The story, as the name suggests, set in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. It is a space port or a cosmodrome.
The story revolves around a Kazakh village boy, who falls in love with a French astronaut.
To me the most striking was the how the ultimate rocket technology is starkly contrasted by the very harsh living conditions of Kazakh steppe. It is just beautiful.
The movie has romance, drama, and comedy very brilliantly fused together, and done just right. My another motive behind watching this movie was to see a film from totally unknown(to me) culture and country.
If you like space(you will get to see some interesting locations of Baikonur cosmodrome), and romance, you must watch this movie, preferably with your romantic interest or significant other! It is a nice trip to a different land!
