The Horse Thieves. Roads of Time

Yerlan Nurmukhambetov, Lisa Takeba, Kazakhstan/Japan

オルジャスの白い馬, 2019, 84 min, K16

Horse Thieves could be called a Kazakh Western, with all the classic Western elements of bad guys, the hero emerging out of the blue, the widowed woman, and the little boy who witnesses this all. And there are horses in a rough mountain scenery, and a tight story executed effectively. Horse Thieves was the opening film at Busan International Film Festival 2019.
