About the Movie

Tuya, hardworking and hardheaded, is a Mongolian desert herder who refuses to be settled in a town in accordance with the new industrialization policy. She is kept busy with two kids, a disabled husband and 100 sheep to care for, but one day she hurts her back. The only way for the family to survive is for her to divorce her husband on paper and look for a new spouse who can take care of the whole family. A series of suitors lines up, but it’s not easy to find a man who fits the bill. This warm, endearing tale, featuring stunning cinematography, won the top prize at the 2007 Berlin International Film Festival.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Tuya's Marriage finds an austere beauty in a landscape of scrub and grassland ringed by forbidding slate-blue mountains. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Tuya's Marriage is thoroughly gratifying in its consistent inventiveness and has a grasp of human nature so universal that there's no feeling of the exotic about the film and its people. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A compact near-masterpiece that combines a slow-motion romantic comedy with a docudrama-style portrait of a remote, nomadic culture as it is gradually eroded by the tides of the 21st century. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: It is a fine and plaintive experience, more modern-day folklore than ethnographic study, and a wonderfully assured piece of cinema. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Oct 18, 2008
