Review

This was the first film project in Kazakhstan which could claim to have a wide international distribution and can draw the attention of the global audience.

Salamat Mukhammed–Ali for the first time ever started working at production of a full-length feature movie. After obtaining the support of major businessmen he managed to hook in renowned actors known for the gangster thrillers such as: Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Michael Madsen and Armand Assante, tree-times Golden Globe Award nominee for TV projects, who also contributed in the film as a co-producer. Tree Golden Globe Award winner Peter O'Toole, who passed away recently, also played an episode role in the film. However unrestrainable the action was in the film, it's obvious that kazakh filmmakers aim to enter the Asian film market and action films are the best option as they know it inside down.

"Russia 24" TV channel, "Cinema Industry" program

The movie, “Whole World at Our Feet” Is an entertaining and interesting film.  Set in exotic locations with elaborate sets, the film has a very luxurious feel. The cinematography was spectacular and the acting was superb, with many familiar actors, including the great Peter O’Toole. Highly enjoyable.

“Whole World at Our Feet” blows your mind off. It’s so original, fresh, and unpredictable! Thumbs up to the director who could beautifully marry action and drama genres. His artistic mastery made the emotional rollercoaster of this movie more thrilling than ever!

Independent Director/Producer/Writer- Peter ZHMUTSKI, USA


A bright,  thrilling love story which may be called a modern legend narrated in an original manner.   The filmmakers managed to create a surreal world which exists in accordance with ruthless and cruel laws where the evil and love surmounted a whole range of hassles and overcame the malice and proved that the true love is capable to save the world.
