Elemental natural beauty and a gripping human drama
30 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Himalayan dramatizes the struggle of a mountain community in the Himalayas. This village must decide the route to take their goods to market through perilous mountain crossings. This happens at the close of the season and at the beginning of winter storms. The village's very existence demands a successful trip. The personal story is about the leadership of the community, old hurts which cast doubt upon that, and the physical rigors of travel in the high and unforgiving elements. The scenic beauty and timeless setting (people living as they have for centuries, with only a few modern items) round out to make this an adventurous and deeply thoughtful film.

Unfortunately, finding copies of this film appears to be be very difficult as it did not achieve much success in the US.
