The clinging to a myth
26 June 2012 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

The movie mostly follows a mother who's trying to salvage enough money for the costly treatments that her daughters' chemotherapy requires. We can see how through the movie that the mother constantly has to find new (and sometimes quiet extraordinary) ways to get more money, we meet some people who try to help & some people who aren't... sounds familiar isn't it? So yea there aren't many surprises here and although the acting is good it can't pull the movie from its mediocrity...

Last point that I want to make is about the name of the movie, the movie called "Bedouin" because one person tells the mother that Bedouins treat cancer with camel milk (now kill me but I can't answer the question why one has to fly to Jordan to drink camel milk and can't buy it within Russia/Ukraine) But aside from that I think this movie represents the sorry place where Russia is now. It's a place where everyone is so depressed and doesn't see any way out that they believe that somewhere far away there are some wise cultures that have a remedy to whatever problems they have. Unfortunately to save something you need/love requires lots of efforts and good amount of luck.
