Welcome to Absurdistan, a small village in the high desert mountains, just on the outskirts of reality, where magical visions and bizarre events fuse together. The village is facing a water shortage, but the men are too lazy to fix a rickety pipeline and the women are getting fed up with their good-for-nothing husbands. The women make a simple vow: 'No water, no sex.'

amusing film made in Azerbaijan by a German director.

hurray for Temelko who understood the value of reconnecting the water and boo to the rest of the men who not only didn't help but put up roadblocks. yet they all benefited in the end. not exactly equitable {;~)

Movie is subtitled, not dubbed, which may be annoying for some. Although the low budget nature of this movie comes through the seems I do like the imagination of the story. If you are looking for a movie that isn't your blockbuster variety (high budget, not the now defunct store), and enjoy independent (looking) films; then you will like this one. Just don't watch it later at night like I did, or you'll miss some of the dialogue --I had to watch it again later.

Где-то на бескрайних просторах Земли находится Богом забытая деревушка Абсурдистан, население которой составляет целых четырнадцать семей. Самая большая проблема для ее обитателей не удаленность от цивилизации, а перебои с водой. Но, как считает женская половина населения, главная беда их деревни — хроническая лень мужчин, которые не хотят палец о палец ударить, чтобы справиться с этой проблемой.

Герои этой истории, Ая и Темелко выросли вместе и сейчас достигли того возраста, когда детская дружба, случается, перерастает в любовь. Но, как выясняется, прежде чем между ними могут установиться какие-либо отношения, Темелко должен помочь решить проблемы деревни с водой. Ситуация в деревне обостряется до предела, когда «водная проблема» перерастает в натуральную войну полов.
