She's the only girl for him

Four years in the making, Sergey Dvortsevoy’s debut feature TULPAN is a symphonic celebration of life and nature, disguised as an adorable, sweet-natured love story.

One of the most internationally heralded films of 2008, TULPAN premiered at Cannes, scooping the three top prizes of Un Certain Regard. It has since swept through a series of international festivals, winning an unrivalled collection of Best Film awards and astonishing audiences with its extraordinary imagery, humanism and charm.

Our protagonist is Asa, a young sailor fresh from completing his military service in the Russian Navy, who arrives at the home of his sister, deep in the windswept ‘Hunger’ steppes of Kazakhstan. Asa is desperate for a farm of his own, but before his brother-in-law will entrust him, he must find a wife. Unfortunately, the only eligible girl for miles is the beautiful Tulpan (Tulip). And she has other plans...The challenges that the undeterred Asa faces in his quest to fulfill his dreams set in the most extraordinary of landscapes - makes for an hilarious and breathtaking cinema experience like no other.
