4.0 out of 5 stars A world apart..., December 18, 2008

This review is from: Tuya's Marriage (DVD)
Do yourself a favor and watch this well made, interesting film which shows how life is in a place you'll most likely never see!

Tuya's life is made harder after her husband injures his back and can no longer work on their sheep farm. She is forced to realize that she needs an able bodied husband and should get divorced and try to marry again. She is responsible for the well being of her two children and she works 24-7, dressed in layers against the cold of the steppes, riding her camel and coming home to make food and more hot milk-tea, everyone's favorite drink OTHER than booze.

The plot doesn't thicken much more, but its enough for a good glimpse into a world infinitely different from ours. Well directed and well filmed, colorful and COLD!

MaryM--I really appreciate your personal touch in writing this review. It looks very interesting to watch; life in another culture than our own. Thank you for posting this review, I would have probably passed on this and had been sorry for that! Sheryl
