The beauty of the cinematography of the film is undeniable. One can enjoy getting to know the four main characters of the film through all of their trails. As one who is not familiar with Buddhist practice, it is an interesting introduction to the Tibetan Buddhist practice of the living teacher, and the tests that his students must endure. The viewer is allowed to participate in the journey, not only throughout the gorgeous mountains of Bhutan, but also the spiritual journey of the students. One cannot sit and watch this film without having one's breath taken away by the beauty of this country. Soundtrack is great as well!
