Tuya's Marriage

I am thoroughly enjoying Netflix's instant view feature. I find myself with 15 minutes here and there so I can watch a movie in spurts, and it remembers where I stopped each time. Over the last week I watched Tuya's Marriage which was stunning and saddening at the same time. The movie was set in Chinese Mongolia and depicted the life of a family of sheep herders. The storyline was tragic, but I loved the strength of the characters, and the perseverance of the heroine.

I won't include a spoiler, but was interested in some of the comments I read about this movie and how different people saw completely different endings . . . I'm not sure if they just stopped watching 10 minutes before the actual ending, or if they didn't remember what certain characters looked like.

I would recommend it, but with the warning that it is not light and fluffy by any stretch of the imagination. It was the perfect movie for me, this week, though, as we make some difficult decisions as a family.
