  • "Road to Mother" may be pedagogic and overlong in its approach to Kazakhstan's past, but it is effective in communicating the country's history.

  • It works mainly in fits and starts, though there's no question that the movie's depiction of the effects of Soviet rule on a nomadic population will be eye-opening for many Western viewers, and deeply resonant for Kazakhstanis.
