If you only see one Kazakh wife-stealing comedy this year, make it Walnut Tree. Even though it probably won’t be the Kazakh wife-stealing comedy you’re expecting.
The film, from director Yerlan Nurmukhambetov, is a small triumph, like a walnut. It’s perfectly paced, and it never abandons a sense of quiet, musing, comedy.
