About This DVD
A co-production by Korea, Mongolia and France, "Hyazagar" (also known as "Desert Dream") takes place in a tiny village straddling the border between China and Mongolia. Townspeople leave one by one as the town becomes increasingly deserted, but one man insists on staying behind. His frustrated wife and daughter abandon him, but Hangai continues on with his daily routine planting trees.
One day, a mother and her young son arrive at his door. Soon-hee and her son Chang-ho have defected from North Korea in the hope of a better life in South Korea, losing her husband on the way. Although they do not understand each other's languages, the three begin a peaceful "co-habitation". As the young boy becomes attached to his temporary home, Soon-hee must also face her own growing attraction to Hangai.
Though pushed forth by dramatic narrative elements- North Korean defectors and stark drought-ridden places- the movie retains a slow, mellow tempo. It is deeply imbedded in realism that makes you fathom the meaning of life and its ironic twists and turns. Though set in barren desert lands, life takes full bloom amid the vast Mongolian plains, and the sandy winds will take your breath away.
Directed by Zhang Lu, who recently gained international acclaim for his award-winning film "Grain in Ear", the film competed at Berlin this year.
