Beautiful film full of heart
10 June 2015 | by tnoblakeSee all my reviews

This is a beautiful film in every sense of the word. Set in breathtaking Nepal, the setting and camera work weave a spell. The landscape becomes a living character in the film and pulls each character in a different direction. The story revolves around a British socialite in need of redemption and purpose in life, an American photographer who has lost his faith in what matters in life, a Nepalese pilot with feet in two worlds, and the director of an isolated Nepalese orphanage who possesses a beautiful heart and quiet spirituality. The Nepalese actors are the standouts, telling the story of their characters and their people with genuine feeling and depth. Highway to Dhampus is a story of love, beauty, transformation and faith in a shared humanity. I laughed, cried, and was moved deeply by this beautiful little film.
