Seth David Mitchell,
I've just seen this film at the London Film Festival and found it truly astonishing. Shot in winter high up in Ladakh (northern India), this black and white film from a first time director and cinematographer engages the eyes and the mind. The story concerns a family living at high altitude and heavily in debt. The father is old and the daughter a little wild. The army moves in to the area and everything shifts. Against this background a series of events unfold until a tragedy is triggered.
The cinematography is outstanding and the landscape revealed in a fashion I have never seen before. It looks unlike any other film of this region and is the better for it.
The music is an integral part of the experience and wisely sidesteps traditional choices for a contemporary soundtrack. Go see it. If you cannot see it on the big screen try to get a DVD!!!
