Storyline

Bayinbulag and Somiya are brought up, from a young age, as brother and sister by their adoptive grandmother. The three live happily in a yurt on the Mongolian steppes. Just before Bayinbulag is to leave for the city, to be trained as a vet, the grandmother suggests that Bayinbulag and Somiya should eventually marry. Bayinbulag, now training to be a musician, stays away for long periods of time without communicating with Somiya. He finally comes back expecting to marry her. Written by Will Gilbert

a story that spans cultural differences
15 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on VHS and I wish it were on DVD.This is a great film-it takes place over a long period of time and touches upon a very universal situation regardless of who you are or where you're from.It's about relationships and choices and the consequences of what we decide.And it has great cinematography as well as acting.there is no sex and virtually no violence(okay,a punch in the nose),yet it is riveting by the virtue that anyone who's lived a normal life has experienced what happens.There is an air of melancholy about this film,but it never becomes cloying.I felt at the end of this film that I had shared a journey with the actors because I had some similar things happen in my life-remember Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken"or a poem by Emily Dickinson that begins"I had long been away from home....".This is a film to watch over many times.
