Today I have finally watched "Kurmanjan Datka". I accompanied my grandma to the cinema, who wanted to watch the movie that was on everyone's lips. I must confess - I had been skeptical about it, despite the numerous admiring reviews of my friends and buddies. To my great embarrassment, I doubted if we had good directors and actors in the country. I am sorry for this. Unexpectedly I loved the film. The idea, plot, actors, acting, directing, scenery - everything was wonderful. I would like to thank the director, actors and producers for such a pleasure! The views of our mountains are marvelous! And I must note that all actors were very pleasant and genuine, I didn't expect that we have so many talented actors in Kyrgyzstan! Most of all I liked symbols in the film and attention to details - peculiar, national, authentic. Great job! That's the stuff!
