A beautiful, heart-wrenching journey
20 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Highway to Dhampus is a movie that isn't just watched; it's experienced. It's a story about human connection that defies what we think we know, and explores what it takes to forgive others and, more importantly, ourselves. With the striking countryside of Nepal as the backdrop, the beautiful cinematography only deepens the connection you feel to the characters, story, and the culture that slowly unfold as the movies plays on. The pace is perfect, and the story is one that will stay with you like an impressionable experience of your own.

Highway to Dhampus is able to capture the perfect imperfections of life and relationships: The beauty that can come from tragedy, and that sometimes our biggest enemy is our own defensiveness. The scenery not only captures your attention, it takes a role in the narrative by reflecting the story. Just like the countryside of Nepal, even in its poverty, it seems that in the nooks and crannies of the unfairness of life, it's possible that beauty not only outweighs the unsightly, but its flaws may even contribute to the richness of its beauty.
