Triptych
Триптих

Three womens’ lives intersect in a small town in Uzbekistan following the war. The first is an old woman trapped in a forced marriage; the second is a schoolteacher imposing progress on the remote region; the third is a young woman determined to build her own house without her husband’s or state approval. Drawing on Khamraev’s memories of his parents’ life, the film’s harsh vision, as well as its ambivalent attitude toward collectivism, made it the object of official disapproval.

Deep nice surprise
Very beautiful picture of what old life and remote places are.
Sound does not work well, but the music is always very well choosen.
I liked the most the teacher character.
