Much Better Movie Than Expected
15 July 2001 | by cmccameySee all my reviews

Beautiful scenery, this movie depicts how innocent events can get out of hand. I loved its depiction of modern Indian tribe life and the conflicts it presents with keeping up old traditions while living in a modern world.

I used to own this movie and loaned it to my sister and she can't find it. I would love to be able find another one and would love it even more if this movie were brought out on DVD.
