Variety
A sensitive if literal-minded tale that demonstrates how Tibet's national identity is of a piece with its spiritual heart.
63
It's a Tibetan film -- a rare thing -- made by Tibetans, starring Tibetans, and set in the increasingly desperate exile community of Dharamsala .

Village Voice
Primped for easy American consumption, this clunkily performed and staged drama concerns a filmmaker's agenda to document Tibetan oppression under Chinese occupation. This becomes spurious pretext for a rather flat Nancy Drew adventure.
50
A fine example of how feature films can be used to deliver urgent political messages, but as drama, it doesn’t quite work.
50
A static and awkward effort that never quite comes to life.
50
The script is undone by confusing romantic developments, a convoluted murder mystery and a facile and maudlin resolution.
20
A minor and forgettable bore.
