Bakhtyar Khudojnazarov

Kosh ba kosh (Odds and Evens)

Edition 1994
90' - 1993 - War, Drama - Dialogue: Russian, Tajik
Director: Bakhtyar Khudojnazarov Composer: Akhmad Bakayev With: Paulina Gálvez, Daler Madzhidov, Alisher Kasimov
Mira, a young woman living in Western Russia, comes to visit her father in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan. Her father, a bom loser, is addicted to gambling. Through a stroke of fate, he even loses Mira, his own flesh and blood, to an old codger who takes her as collateral. For Daler, a young gambler who is no stranger to risk, it's love at first sight. He loses no time in sweeping Mira away to his world. Daler operates the local cable car and his cabins transport all manner of goods: tourists, fodder, crates of beer, contraband; they even double as an aerial love nest. He prepares a romantic picnic, transcending heaven and earth and conquers Mira's heart.
