      Seemingly absurd but "reasonable"

      As a "documentary film", this sad and poetic title has attracted my attention in many relatively monotonous documentary films. The desert-like area is like the Middle East, with chaotic disputes and absurd plots. The location is a small town in Central Asia, a beautiful young girl Malaka, like many girls who love to dream, her mother died early, and she lives with her father and a brother who got insane during the war. Malaka was seduced by a stranger in the dark because she couldn't watch a...

      A mess, this is life.

      Recently, I have been wanting to watch a comedy to hang my emotions, but it is always difficult to find a suitable one.

      Let’s talk about a few episodes first:

      When Malaka was pregnant and wanted to confess to her father, she tied up her father. Dad thought his little sweetheart was playing games with him. At that time, the street was looking for Malaka’s paintings The sudden change in the wind is really nice. But when I saw the back, Malaka was accused by thousands of...

      who is your moon

      This film is another very interesting film. There is a hint of reality and magic throughout. From a certain point of view, this film also uses comedy to tell tragedy. There is not much soundtrack in the film, but the few times it appears indicates a turning point in the plot. The simple plot is told complex but not boring, and the amount of information on the background of the film is also quite large. The fact that the roof can fly is a highlight. The cute and brave Malaka, his brother...

      stay away from evil

      The more traditional a nation is, the more it will express itself in some seemingly crazy ways.
      Whether it's Yugoslav's Emir Kusturica
      or this time Russia's Bakhtyar Khudojnazarov,

      it seems that everything is nonsense,
      but in retrospect, it all coincides with
      the truth. Chinese film reality also needs Such a pen to describe all kinds of evil worthy of bombardment
      but good movies are always less entertaining.
      Only entertainment newspapers and magazines...

      about life

      One day, we were sitting in the office, talking little things about the Director.

      The white sneakers and T-shirts of the second-tier city clerks who don't look right, the overtime madness like chicken blood every day, the myth of immortality that has come out of our round, the director is like another creature in this world, Alone in the world. Of course, being alone in the world is often not as noble as in literature. So when you are with him, you are always afraid that others will...

      ①A joint production by eight countries, which is rare; ②I didn’t like it very much when I saw how messy it was at first, but I found that it was messy all the time, which was a bit interesting; ③The magic realism method looks absurd, but after reading it I thought about it. Perhaps only such absurd methods can make us feel the incomparable absurdity in real life. ④The picture quality of the version you see is...

      As expected of a fighting nation, I was stunned by my father's outstanding combat effectiveness. But the final ending is sad, I think Makara should have been killed by the crazy villagers, but just flew to the distance on the roof in his brother's...

    Background creation

    The director believes that today's Central Asia is in conflict and confusion with the traditional thinking of the past. Some people say that the real has an unreal side. Therefore, setting the film scene on the coastal boundary means that it is difficult to highlight the real and the unreal. definite party. Unwed pregnant teenage girls are fighting for their own happiness and the future of their children. Just like the "Family Search"...
