A quirky Kazakhstani crime comedy filled with film references and a passion for cinema

Ex-con Kermek wants to put his criminal past behind him and open his own cinema high up in the mountains, but with gangsters and corrupt police on his tail, this is easier said than done. With his partner in crime Eva, our hero sets out on a journey to make his dream a reality. Steeped in references to film history, the quirky, picturesque and irresistibly charming YELLOW CAT is a Central-Asian western comedy which combines the visual stylings of Yerzhanovs earlier films with the humour of Emir Kusturica.
