Student movie directed by Darezhan Omirbayev from Kazakhstan was named the most recommended film of the Cannes Film Festival, Tengrinews.kz reports. The movie received good comments of film critics. Daniel Kasman ranked Student Number One in the Top Picks rating of the movies screened at the 65th Cannes Film Festival. "Kazakh master Darezhan Omirbaev continues adapting Russian literature—after Chekhov and Tolstoy—with a moving, pared Crime and Punishment. "The world of the film is not limited to his vision, only interpreted and impaired by it; this materialist filmmaker, whose cinema is always rooted in the reality of the filming, objects and locations, the importance of where people live, work, drive, grow up, nevertheless makes his films so much about perception of this same world, and perception's limits, expanses and reveries. “For the first time in Omirbaev's films dissolves separate scenes, which, along with his characteristic dream sequences—which are dream-like but not dreamy, so they resemble the look and feel of the rest of the film, until a detail gives away the irreality," Daniel Kasman writes in his review of Student. Damiel Kasman's review in full called Cannes 2012. Darezhan Omirbaev's "Student" can be found at Notebook magazine's website. It is the third time Omirbayev took part in the Cannes Film Festival. His movie Killer got a special prize in Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Festival. Three years later, in 2001, he brought his next picture, The Road, to Cannes. Kazakhstan director’s movie that was filmed based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky's novel Crime and Punishment was screened as part of Un Certain Regard section. However, the film hasn’t been awarded with any prizes. “The other day someone asked me whose films I’m looking forward to. And I said I care about Loznitsa [in competition with In the Fog], Seidl [Paradise: Love] and Omirbayev [whose film Student is in the Un Certain Regard section]. "One thing that annoys me: why is a man like Omirbayev not in competition? It’s not good for cinema. I understand there have to be films with stars. But how many films are there in competition this year about cinema, by people trying to make cinema? Kiarostami, Seidl, Carax, probably four or five or six,” said Carlos Reygadas, talking to Dennis Lim in the New York Times. International distributors purchased the rights to both Darezhan Omirbayev’s Student and Akan Satayev’s The Brave also known as Zhauzhurek Myn Bala (1000 Brave Boys) movies. Student will be release on DVD in Kazakhstan.
