Sweetie, You Won't Believe It

Жаным, ты не поверишь! (Zhanym, ty ne poverish’!)

A film by Ernar Nurgaliev

Kazakhstan, 2020, 84'

It all starts trivially – with an argument between a young couple. Spouses are waiting for their first child, and every day the situation gets worse. The main hero, Dastan, cannot withstand his wife's continual pressure. He decides to run away just for a day with his friends: an unlucky businessman and a local policeman. Together they plan to go fishing and would have succeeded, had a series of sudden and mysterious unforeseen events not occurred. This crazy Kazakh comedy has won over audiences at the festivals where it has been screened. Social commentary, satire and burlesque gore is the recipe Yernar Nurgaliyev brings us, showing many affinities with the winner of the 2019 European Feature Film competition, the Russian “Why Don’t You Just Die?”.
