This film is full of beauty of nature and people and innocence together with spirituality.
I am personally very deeply touched, awed, and inspired by the scenery shown in the movie and by the relationship between the little girl and the astray dog and by the lovely family. I highly recommend this film to everyone!

Simple beautiful! Definitely, watch the special feature, the interview with the filmmaker.
Though, I'm not quite clear on how appreciating and respecting nature goes with leaving a tied up puppy behind to die...

A beautifully shot movie that tells a simple and realistic tale. The simple narrative helps shape the movie achieve it's main goal of showing what life is like for a modern nomadic family in Mongolia. The filmmaker's found a wonderful familiar with children that are able to act very naturally on camera. A very nice skirting of the line between fiction and documentary.

It is very delicate, relaxing and beautiful movie. The relation between a dog and a child, also the relation between nature and human being and daily life of a nomadic family documented very well.

All the Mongolian culture seen in this film made this story very interesting. It showed their everyday life. Although this DVD claims it has an English dubbed version I was not able to make it work on this copy. I was able to watch it with the English subtitles.
