Grab and run

Grab and run

Since Kyrgyzstan gained its Independence in 1991, there has been a revival of the ancient practice of Ala-Kachuu, which translates roughly as "grab and run". More than half Kyrgyz women are married after being kidnapped by the men who become their husbands. Some escaped after violent ordeals, but most are persuaded to stay by tradition and fear of scandal. Ala-Kachuu was outlawed during Soviet era and remains illegal under the Kirghiz criminal code, but the law has rarely been enforced to protect women from this violent practice.

Here's a fine example of a film that may makes up for an exciting watch due to its director Roser Corella extra-ordinary sense of creating spectacles that feel like breathing artworks.

Every genre has the potential to be 'done well'... and this film meets those expectations.
