Spectular Himalayan scenes, poor story
22 July 2013 | by wordsonasiaSee all my reviews

How to describe the sensation of being at altitude, five kilometres up in the air, and seeing 8,000 metre mountains and 3,000 metre ravines? How to convey the idea of being able to see hundreds of kilometres through thin air and the seemingly warped perspectives, rather like an Escher staircase, of rumbled hills and ravines? I can't. I have traveled the route of this film and it tries, but I think fails through not accepting that the Himalaya is the story; not some self-possessed young bloke with bratish behaviour. I recommend this for the scenery - mountain and valley views you won't see anywhere else. But the story left me feeling annoyed.
