Movie Info

A rare film to come out of Uzbekistan, Bo Ba Bu is a visual work with very little dialogue. The communication is through body language and guttural sounds. One day, a shepherd named Bo finds a badly hurt woman in the desert. He takes her to the sheep farm that he runs with his younger brother Bu. The woman, whom the brothers name Ba, seems to have lost the power of speech. She makes no effort to communicate with the brothers, who soon begin to feel possessive and jealous about their new acquisition. The film's beautiful landscape of merciless desert implies a continuous fight for survival, particularly when all must be done according to rituals decided a long time before. Bo seems to represent the primitive man with his animalistic instincts, whereas Bu stands for pure and spiritual love. The film was shown at the Stockholm International Film Festival in 1999. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, Rovimore
