Hyazgar ( Desert Dream )

IMDB Rating: 7.7


With all the villagers including his own family leaving their remote town for better places, Hungai (Bat-Ulzii) is stubbornly left on his own, with only alcohol for company. That is until North Korean refugee Soon Hee (Seo Jung) and her son Chang Ho (Shin Dong Ho) show up. Though they do not speak the same language, they come to support and rely on each other as the three of them eke out a living in the lonely hinterlands. Hungai gradually develops a strong friendship - and maybe more - with Soon Hee. Fragile dreams stand strong against desert winds in Desert Dream (a.k.a. Hyazgar) from acclaimed Chinese filmmaker Zhang Lu (Grain in the Ear), who was nominated for Best Director at the 2nd Asian Film Awards. A joint production from South Korea, France, and Mongolia, Desert Dream is set in a barren town at the border between China and Mongolia. Korean actress Seo Jung (The Isle), child actor Shin Dong Ho (To Sir With Love), and Mongolian actor Bat-Ulzii quietly spin a tale of unlikely love and universal dreams at the edge of nature and society. Screened in competition at the 2007 Berlin Film Festival, the film uses long shots to capture the sweepingly beautiful landscape, and humanistic storytelling to realistically depict life on the border of hope and anguish.
