Rating: PG13 (Some Coarse Language 些许粗俗语言)

Synopsis

To others, Kermek is an ex-con and a blithering idiot. To himself, he is a wide-eyed fanboy of Alain Delon who wants to build his own cinema. Accompanied by his beloved Eva, he relies on his pluck and a surprising sensibility for the cinematic—a folk hero for the screen. But the wilder their dreams, the more saboteurs they find on their tails: police and mafia, all in a territory where everything happens in full view.

Genre-savvy as always, Adilkhan Yerzhanov treks acrosss parsel and scapes and classical cinema history to deliver a measured mix of the deadpan, the hopeful and the absurd. This is a film that wears its heart (and references) on its sleeve, approaching grim realities with a sincerity that may move the deepest cynics.
