Beautiful meditation from Turkmenistan
22 April 2004 | by andy_n_johansenSee all my reviews

I recently saw this film on a retrospective at the copenhagen night film festival. When the movie started i was captured immediately by the music in the movie which was very minimalistic and sounded electronically, or it may have been some kind of exotic string instrument. The story evolved around a woman living with her father-in-law in the turkmenian desert. The timesetting: some years after second world war. The woman has lost her husband in the war, so it seems, but still lives on with the hope he will come flying back some beautiful day. She and her father-in-law keeps having lifeaffirming flashbacks about how life was before the war.

Simple story, sympathetically realized on screen. A pearl from an old corner of Turkmenistan, former republic of Sovjet Union. Hope this one will be available on DVD some day :-)
