sure, it is not the right word about this film. but it could be a reasonable one. because the film must be discovered in the political context of its birth. as a form of fight against political command. as a touching story about a teacher, a community and a mission. a simple story about evolution of a man looking for the right manner to change the others. and to define himself. short, one of the films about small realities. about fears and errors and need to build the sense of the presence in middle of people. story of the first teacher in a Kirghiz village. nothing more.
