An elderly Nenet woman in teepee on northern Russia's Jamal Peninsula recounts her early life betrothed to a deity for the entertainment of a blind young girl in ethnographic feature 'A Bride of the Seventh Heaven.' Third pic by director Anastasia Lapsui ('Seven Songs From the Tundra,' 'Mothers of Life') covers similar frozen turf, offering a visually fascinating yet dramatically pokey look at a unique and vanishing way of life at the top of the world. In the Nenet culture, a girl child can be married to holiest of holies, Num, before or after her birth. Lonely old Numbd Syarda (which means, literally, 'tied to Num') entertains the blind young Ilne ('giver of life') with stories of how she became one of these chosen few. Action follows various shamanistic ceremonies and rituals. Based in Finland, Nenet helmer Lapsui herself suffered temporary blindness as a child, and pic is based on stories she heard from various 'brides of god' during this time.
