A loving story with some fantasy thrown in.
18 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of my favorite movies when I was younger and still is today. It contains beautiful scenery of Napal as well as local people. A touching love story between two teenagers which is safe for the whole family to watch. You will find no nudity and no profanity in the entire thing. A great choice for family movie night along the lines of Anne of Green Gables but more modern. A young girl and her family move to Napal, against her wishes and there she meets a young man. Add in some local legends and the kids coming of age and deciding what they want out of life and you have a great movie. The soundtrack is also amazing. You will never ask a cab driver to wait for you the same way again. :)
