My friend Jimbo sent me a link to this movie. I know nothing about it, though I do want to see it.

There was a whole lot of Russian in that movie. It was OK, if you like bleak, realist style movies.

It didn’t grab me quite as much as I had hoped — I liked the performances but it was very realist-style, not a super strong story arc. And I have to admit I was wishing for a steadicam at a few points. But if you see one movie about a Kazakh naval veteran striving to prove himself as a herder and looking for love on the steppes this year, it might as well be this one.

That is *quite* the vehicle the protagonist and his friends are driving around in.
