   REVIEWS

  • "The long, sustained pitches of the traditional Kyrgyz music that is the film's soundtrack add to the woeful nostalgia [...]."  - The Hollywood Reporter

  • "The small film benefits from the honesty of Matthias’ score, which in its folk melodic structure and ethnic instrumentation lends a supportive verisimilitude to Kubat’s gentle film. The music is sublime, drawn from acoustic folk traditions with hauntingly beautiful melodies set on serene cadences." - Randall Larson's Soundtrax

  • "The film's use of traditional Kyrgyz soundtrack, along with cinematic pans of the rugged but beautiful landscape, makes for a great viewing." - Illume

  • "[...] la sonorité bienveillante, chaude mais mesurée du duduk le nimbe notamment d’une aura de réconfort tandis que la sobre mais très belle ligne mélodique, selon qu’elle soit franche ou discrète, lui confère une impression mêlée de force tranquille et de relative fragilité." - Under Scores - Le Magazine de la Musique de Film
