A fine film from a fine filmaker,
This review is from: The Cave of the Yellow Dog [DVD] (DVD)
When the film maker has talent AND an authentic relationship with her subject, you get great films like this. It is tenderly filmed and beautifully performed by the family, especially the little girl who stars. This DVD includes an interview with the writer/director, Byambasuren Davaa. Listening to her talk, I realised that the film is shaped entirely by her own relationship to her family, upbringing and Mongolian culture and it is this that makes the film special, as it is infused with her love for her subject, her life. I bought this because I'd seen her first film,The Story Of The Weeping Camel  [DVD]another fine film about Mongolian nomadic life. I wish more women had the chance to make more films.
