Awesome filming. Sort of a surrealistic feel to it.
3 November 2000 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The movie is one of the best looking ones i'we ever seen. Some of the scenes in here take your breath away. The story is about a dog that dies and its spirit wanders to find its owner. But the story isn't very important here (at least to me it wasn't). It's sort of a picture collection of Mongolia. Lot's of great scenes with a surrealistic feel. Add some very good sound/music and there you have it.

I loved it. But don't watch it if you want something to cheer you up. They haven't exactly picked the nicest places. Almost everything looks deteriorated and polluted. Enjoy!
