This is perhaps the best movie filmed in Kazakhstan over the last decade. Historically, KZ had a fairly strong film making school, but somehow we lost this strength to shallow comedies with dominance of men dressed up as a women. This one is totally different. Story of the talented man with difficult fate which proves that "cream always finds its way up".
