Storyline

Nabat and her husband Iskender, an old and sick ex-forestry worker, live in a small isolated house far from the village. The war in Nagorno-Karabakh has been raging for some time and their son has been killed at the front. Their sole means of survival is the sale of milk from their only cow that Nabat takes to the village every couple of days. As the shadow of war envelopes the region the village is slowly deserted by its inhabitants. Following Iskender's death, Nabat has to survive in a now abandoned village under the regard of a she-wolf. Written by Dreamlab Films

The best art-house film from Azerbaijan
15 March 2015 | by chovganSee all my reviews

Azerbaijan's Oscar submission, is an exquisitely shot minimalist tale of an elderly woman who finds herself the last remaining resident in a village evacuated during the Nagorno-Karabakh war of two decades ago. With little in the way of commercial prospects, the film's poetic strengths should nonetheless continue to find favour among viewers.

Bleak and greatly wordless as this tale is, there's a certain quiet grandeur to its unfolding. The low-key, somber colors and elegant crane shots of Abdulrahim Besharat's lensing make Nabat inevitably part of a pitiless yet graceful landscape. Hamed Sabet's sorrowful string score is only occasional present, capping an assembly as handsome as it is spare.
