Critic Reviews for Svet-Ake (The Light Thief)
Director Kubat stars as Mr Light (the rest of the actors are mostly non-pros), giving a performance of profound warmth and humanity.
So, Mr. Light is only light, a simple hero in a small film that ignores the potential complexities of its characters and their decisions - it exposes the spread of corruption, but not its enveloping temptation.
The genial satire of the early scenes eventually gives way to bitter tragedy in a quixotic but charming salute to an irrepressible dreamer.
A touching, pawkily amusing example of that fairly rare genre, the satirical tragedy.
Cinematographer Hassan Kydyraliyev has done a good job, but the film - Kubat's sixth - belongs securely to this cherishable director and actor.
