But in the mystic summer landscape he soon falls in love with traditional singer Sajana and can't recognise himself any more. The donnish logistician becomes a hotspur who believes in ghosts!

User Reviews

German exotica comedy.
10 May 2013 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

The German clothing supplier sends his distribution guy Kroll, now divorced from Katja Riemann, to streamline the company operation in Kemerovo in Siberia.

There Kroll finds the locals operating out of a market stall and he and the film are sidetracked, when he hears throat singer Men and follows her to her home community, shedding his hang ups in the process.

We get a gay translator, Agro ex-husbands, steam baths, a sanctified Balalaika and Shaman ceremonies

Handsome film which is unable to redeem it's central cliché, despite the talent and skill deployed.
