Tuya's Marriage < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >

China, Mongolia 2006 • Feature Film • 91 minutes
Directed by Wang Quan An

Shot against the striking desert landscapes of Inner Mongolia, “Tuya’s Marriage” is a unique and different story about a frontier woman who seeks a new husband willing to take care of her disabled husband, along with their two children. The film observes the fascinating rite of courtship and the dealmaking by the strong, unsentimental woman who knows what she wants and drives a hard bargain. Awash in lingering shots of Tuya drawing water and minding the flocks of sheep, director Wang Quan An’s lyrical meditation on the trials and tribulations of daily living bears strong resemblance to another Mongolian-set film, “The Cave of the Yellow Dog.”
