Winner of the Un Certain Regard award this year at the Fanfan tulpan online dating Film Festival, the fast disappearing world of nomadic sheep herders in Kazakhstan is dramatized in the part fictional, part documentary film Tulpan.

Directed by Sergei Dvortsevoy, Tulpan is the story of an ex-sailor seeking to marry the only available woman in the area to fulfill his dream of tending his own flock. The narrative, however, is secondary to the dramatic on-camera birth of a lamb and the spectacular scenery of the steppes. Much Fanfan tulpan online dating the film takes place in the tent house called a yurt that is shared by Asa Askhat Kuchinchirekovhis brother-in-law Ondas Ondasyn Besikbasovhis older sister Samal Samal Yeslyamovaand three children.

The smallest boy is an absolute delight running and shouting as he plays with sticks and his pet turtle. His older brother has the uncanny knack of repeating the news broadcasts he hears on the radio word for word, reciting recites them daily to a curious Ondas. The only shrill note in the film is the constant high-pitched singing of Asa's niece Maha Mahabbat Turganbayeva who sings the same drone-like folk song six or Fanfan tulpan online dating times.

As the film opens, Asa, his best friend Boni Tulepbergen Baisakalovand Ondas visit the family of Tulpan, a young woman whom they want Asa to marry. In southern Kazakhstan, the terrain is so forbidding that a herdsman must have a wife to do the chores while he tends his sheep and Ondas considers Asa too irresponsible and immature to be a herdsman without a wife. At the family gathering Tulpan is not present Asa makes up stories about his adventures in the Russian navy and how he fought an octopus in a life and death struggle.

Tulpan's parents, however, are unimpressed and later tell Asa that their daughter who is never seen in the film has rejected him because his ears are too big. How she might have known that is not made clear but it leads to a comic comparison of Asa's ears to a picture of Prince Charles.

Discouraged, Asa threatens to leave the steppe and move to the city with Boni but is reluctant to give up either his dream of marrying Tulpan or learning about animal husbandry. As Asa tries to prove himself to Ondas whose herd of sheep is plagued by a series of mysterious deaths, he assists in the birthing of a lamb and meets his severest test. Tulpan is a natural showcase for the region and Cinematographer Joly Dylewska captures the swirling dust and the stark landscape with striking success.

One of the best scenes is that of a bandaged camel placed in a motorcycle sidecar by a veterinarian Esentai Tulendiev while the mother paces in Fanfan tulpan online dating background. Not a dry National Geographic Special, Tulpan has ethnic and pop music, adorable children, moments of wicked humor, and an unforced naturalism that is captivating. Was this review helpful?
