Another romantic fable taking advantage of exotic places and people, in this case a kazakh tribe of nomads living close to the space-launch site of Baikonur. It has its moments of fun, and the landscapes are beautiful, but the movie never develops above average quality. For a similar take on these subjects Tulpan is a much superior movie
Never forget how beautiful life on Earth can be, while chasing the stars, could be the message of the movie. And that your loved ones will always be those who are close, even if you don't acknowledge it in the first place. The mixture between (sort-of) modern technology and everyday shepherd's life is dealt with more poetically than it might seem and the Bregovic soundtrack make it even more so. A sweet movie.
