A beautiful film
10 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a moving and sensitive film about a boy at a crossroads of his life. This world at times is so alien and at times so familiar, this is the film's great strength and it does not surprising that it has done so well at festivals. With great sensitivity and little judgement, the director manages to portray this boy's life, his desire to become a monk and his relationship with his mother and brother.

I was genuinely moved by the end, and desperate to know what had happened and what course this boy's life had taken. In fact I was left wanting more. But all the time we are steeped in this far off culture, unfamiliar and fascinating to us, but we end up seeing it through his eyes. Simply beautiful.
