A comical self-study of a filmmaker’s life and work spurred on by contemplation over a love letter from his wife. His dreams and anxieties are seen through his own eyes while on a long and emotional road trip to his native village.

MUBI's take

Warmly received at Cannes, this meta meditation on filmmaking from Kazakhstan’s premier auteur Darezhan Omirbayev is a witty amalgam of daydreams, private musings, and self-deprecating humor. A dynamic road trip ending in Omirbayev’s hometown, the film subtly layers personal and collective memories.
