Movie Info

Aktan Abdykalykov made his directorial debut with this semi-autobiographical Kirghizian-French drama set in a rural Kirghizian village where young Adyr plays in the brick mudpits, takes an interest in a girl, and attends outdoor movie showings. However, Adyr's pals reject him when it's learned that he's adopted, and more dark clouds hover over Adyr after a death in the family. Filmed in black and white with color inserts, this film played in several 1998 film fests (Locarno, Montreal, Toronto). ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Beshkempir (The Adopted Son)

  • May 02, 2013
    It is very rare to see a Kyrgig film and you often become lost in the exploration of such a strange and unique world. The drama is aided by the reality of the actors' existence. They are not so much acting as providing a slice of their lives.
