"In a rage, a teacher murders a boy. Another boy is bred, for one sole purpose: to avenge his brother’s death. Kazakh master Ermek Shinarbaev’s close collaboration with the Korean-Russian writer Anatoli Kim yielded three great films, the most remarkable of which is this beautiful, profoundly unsettling film. One of the greatest films to emerge from the Kazakh New Wave, and one of the toughest.” —Kent Jones. In Russian with English titles.
