(mx) wrote: Finding it extremely captivating and suspenseful, I highly enjoyed this film. Definitely a ruthless thriller that has no problem depicting reality, no matter how ugly it may be at times. The movie shows the harsh consequences people must pay for when they selfishly try to get to the top, attempting to attain more money and power no matter who they must step over. It shows the poison money can be, and the rash choices people make when left with no better option. Recommendable to anyone who likes gangster/action indie movies, that adds its own personal twist.

(es) wrote: I sometimes have a problem with alienation from the subject matter of movies. If I find movies about sections of the British lumpen proletariat problematical because I sometimes just don??t understand the cultural frame of reference ?? how then do I relate to the characters in Tulpan? Is Tulpan cinematography or ethnography? What in God??s name do I know about Kazakhstan? Bugger all except that it has a president-for-life and rigged elections. Oh, and that lots of it is flat. Well I certainly know that it??s flat now. Tulpan is probably the most featureless feature I??ve ever seen - not a tree, not a stream, just two yurts (not in the same place ?? nothing as proto-urban as a settlement of more than one yurt). There are lots of animals though ?? goats, horses, cats, donkeys, dogs, cattle, camels and, most of all, sheep. But one of the problems is that I spent so much of my time wondering what was going on, what everything was, that I found myself losing the plot. What the hell was the sister pounding in the tall cylinder thing? Where does ??comrade boss?? fit in? What are those round white things? Why are they put on the roof? Do ex Soviet sailors in Kazakhstan wear their old uniforms for best for the rest of their lives? What the hell is a sailor doing in Kazakhstan anyway? I mean, Switzerland is positively bloody coastal in comparison with Kazakhstan. How come they can simply splash water out of the bowser when the source is so distant that we never see it? What are the traditional marriage arrangements of Kazakhs? Where do they crap? Is this remotely or closely related to how Kazakhs think and behave? What is causing the lambs to be stillborn? And please, please, what do the word??s of that bloody song mean? When I was not thus distracted, I was able to discern a rather sweet story about the unrequited love of Asa, a young man who??s done his conscript period in the mighty Soviet Pacific fleet, for, er?, a girl named Tulpan who he has never seen (she??s seen him ?? his ears are too big). It??s charming, and the hero??s reaction to helping the live birth of the lamb is as good a piece of movie-making as I??ve seen recently. (Apparently Sergey Dvortsevoy adjusted the rest of the movie around the sheep nativity ?? not surprisingly, the sheep was only able to co-operate so much.) There are some other lovely bits too ?? like consoling Asa about his ears by showing him a photograph of a big-eared prince, Charles ?? ??is he an African prince??? ??No, an American prince.?? Much like Prince Charles, Asa hopes to have his own flocks, wife and yurt one day. But it is not this day. An exhilarating if bewildering experience.

(de) wrote: A great and enchanting movie. Wonderful scenery, set in the beautiful landscape of the Kingdom of Bhutan. Through two very different stories of two men in pursuit of dreams, who through different circumstances, discover the folly of pursuing unrealistic dreams in search of happiness. Hints may be found pointing to the first two Seals of Dharma, but not an overly Buddhist movie.

(nl) wrote: 87%Saw this on 20/11/16An honest, realistic and informative retelling of the events of Pearl Harbour bombing that is as serious as it can be. Eventhough its directed by 3 people, that too one being American and 2 Japanese, the film seems one and evenly structured. It is by far the best film on Pearl Harbour.
