Format: DVD
It is the outstanding cinematography of the Himalaya Mountains which creates the most profound effect on the viewer ... but equally powerful is the story of how the people in this Dolpo village make a long arduous trek via caravan to trade salt for grain. It is how they sustain their lives in the starkly naked mountain village where they reside. The dangers of this journey are all too real ... yet the people in the village courageously embark on the journey ... knowing the risks and the hardships ... battlng the elements and ultimately facing nature herself, learning to work with her forces to ensure their own survival.

The chief elder Tinle learns of the death of his son after the return of a caravan from such a journey. He becomes despondent and accuses one of the young men of failing to protect his son from death during the journey. Although other men who were there told Tinle that Karma the caravan leader had done all he could to save his son, Lhaka and had even placed himself in danger to bring back his body, Tinle is not convinced. The preparation for another journey begins but Karma and Tinle disagree on the timing of the journey. Karma convinces a group of young men to embark early due to avoid possible snow storms. Based on past experience and the advice he sought from the Buddhist monks, Tinle leaves four days later.

The most emotionally satisfying and beautiful aspects of this story revolve around relationships, one being how Tinle and Karma each grow as human beings when they lead a band of men, women, and children on this arduous but life-sustaining journey through steep mountain trails with deep gorges below them.

I had been searching for about the last seven years for this movie after having seen it on UK TV. Sadly though this item was not available with English subtitles, so be aware!!! Only in French or Tibetan.

However, English version in Blu Ray will be available in January 2014 from the US.

If you like world cinema, and have a soft heart which is curious about the sensitive people of Mongolia, then this is a truly lovely film to watch.
