Wonderful film with breathtaking views . . .
30 September 2015 | by dyejoutahSee all my reviews

HIGHWAY TO DHAMPUS is a beautiful narrative about personal transformation. The characters come from a variety of backgrounds and their motivations are influenced by these backgrounds, but in the end redemption comes to each through choosing to be vulnerable, assimilating the past, and choosing to be better in the future. I found myself being introspective and understanding how I can be better based on what I experienced in those 100 minutes.

Set in Nepal, the cinematography is breathtaking and vibrant. It was so stunning at times I felt like the landscape was the hero of the scene.

I recommend this film!
