A realistic description of love
19 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

which appropriately fits the modern day psychology.

Prolonged separation does harm relationships no matter how deep the devotion is at the very beginning. Time changes, things change and so are people, and vows made would often fade with time. Long period of waiting due to strong dedication that finally lead to the reunite with childhood love does happen, but very rarely, and the split up described in the movie is far more common reality.

Under the disguise of beautiful setting, even somewhere as remote as Inner Mongolia and life as simple as nomads cannot escape the problem of modernity.
