'An almost two hours emotional roller coaster ride'
23 November 2018 | by fideldemaraSee all my reviews

No one can guess where Azat, the lead character, is going to take us as the movie keeps him quiet and mysterious throughout the first half of the movie.

A desolate village, an abandoned house, and the old friends seems starting to give us the clue that it is all about a reconciliation, a new beginning, and a reunion. It is getting stronger as Azat begins to renovate the old house that he used to live before he and his family left to New York.

The premise may sounds so simple, but not until we enter the second half of the movie, in which the bitter truth and reality which are combined with the complexity of culture and religion, are hitting in a slow phase like a never-ending emotional roller coaster ride.

The bluish color tone and the winter set strengthen the idea of how cold and sorrowful story the director, Bakyt Mukul and Dastan Zahaparuulu want to deliver to their audiences.
