CELESTIAL CAMEL (2017) by Yuriy Feting
“In the boundless steppes of Kalmykia”
Do you like traveling to the Russian steppe? It sure if isay in that way you say me “no, thanks”. But, think about it, a far and exotic place. Russia has a different culture and infinite landscapes. Do you like now travel with me? Ok, come on!
This is a tender and bestiality story. I know, I put bestiality only to make more interesting this, but is literal also. Because is an story about camels. In Mongolia the kalmukos people think that the birth of albino camel is a good omen. But wel the shepherd sell baby camel Altynka, Mara, his mother, escapes to be find her calf.This is a disaster for the shepherd’s family and the oldest son, Bayr takes off to retrieve her.
We join to Bayr in his adventures across the Kalmyk steppe. Maybe it isn’t the most interesting argument but is creative an different and is more than I can say about others films that estoy now in the cinema schedule. But this is not the most importat thing in amovie, or not only. The lifestyle in the Kalmyk steppe, the beauty of its landscapes, skypes, the culture, the dances, the songs, the rituals, the typical cloth and the form of interacting with the animals and others persons that not belong to the steppe.
All these things are the real film. You can feel like if you stay in there. The amazing photograph, the treatment of natural ligh of the light in general is wonderful and draw the ways of everything. And finally you can feel the strength and power of the animal instinct. Mara is It sure that you like watch this film now, don’t you?
