The director is Ali Khamraiev and the film (which I am surprised anyone has
seen in the US) is indeed splendid, beautiful, subtle, moving. I cannot
describe my huge liking of it when I saw it in an European Festival, where
I spent much of my time sending friends to see it and practically cursed
those that came out of it declaring "Yes, it is nice," "Very nice."or
suchlike routine opinions.I then persuaded the Fest's director to have a
Khamraiev retrospective the following year. It happened. And something
