AKIPRESS.COM - Tunku Kyrsyk (Night Accident) by Kyrgyz director Temirbek Birnazarov was awarded the Grand Prix of the 21st Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, which drew to a close Saturday in Tallinn, the Estonian capital, Hollywood Reporter said.

The picture centers on an old man who plans to kill someone who broke up his family and destroyed his life. However, on his way to do the deed, the old man has an accident, hitting a girl on the road, and that event changes his life.

The film's review has appeared on the Variety.com website: A hushed, heartsore, wholly immersive story of tentative human connection across a generational gulf, the film, which world premiered in the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, fully deserves to take up the baton for this distinctive and exciting national cinema next year. Its deceptive quietude imbues the most banal of incidents — the wrapping of a bandage, the cracking of an egg — with fascination, and lets faces and actions convey the simple but increasingly evocative narrative with almost silent-movie elegance.
