FILM REVIEW: “Tuya’s Marriage”

From Willamette Week, 2/6/08 [Portland International Film Festival Coverage]:

A candid and occasionally amusing insight into the domestic frustrations of a modern female Mongolian farmer. With a disabled husband back at home, Tuya (Yu Nan), the strong-willed mother and film’s namesake, is the matriarch and breadwinner of her family. But after recovering from an acute hay-lifting injury, she realizes she can no longer toil as a shepherd and solely provide for her husband and kids. So she decides to re-enter the dry, dusty Asian steppe dating scene and try to find a new husband: a sugar papa who’ll be able to care for her crew. Gentlemen suitors begin to show up on her doorstep, and the Mongolian romantic hijinks ensue. LANCE KRAMER.
