Review
Byambasuren Davaa's follow-up to ‘The Story of the Weeping Camel' is a low key drama-documentary style tale of a nomadic family on the Mongolian steppes. Using the adoption by one of three young children of a stray dog as the narrative centrepiece to build a picture round, we observe many aspects of a disappearing lifestyle; riding horses, skinning a goat, sewing clothes, the costumes themselves, riding horses, cooking food, dismantling a yurt, moving home et al. Excellent fare for anyone, including me, who likes this sort of movie.
