This documentary tells the story of the Himalayan region of Bhutan. The story of the Kharbadar tribe, the Sakhi tribe and the Jotjar tribe. They are united to try to survive the monsoon season. It is a very interesting documentary and there are so many scenes that are interesting. If you are interested in this topic and want to learn more about it, go and watch this documentary.

A bit of a downer in the story line but a great documentary nonetheless. Great historical footage from back in the 1970's. I was interested in the movie after reading some other reviews and was pleasantly surprised that a lot of people didn't agree with the movie's findings. That makes you realize how often myths and misinformation are passed along. I loved the way the director kept reminding us that it was a documentary and not a movie, but still the facts were well documented. And the cast and crew did a great job too!

The first half of the film is mostly telling the story of Bhutan. The film is very good, and the true story of Bhutan is well told. The second half of the film is about the journey of an American girl, and her story. This film is very good and I would recommend to watch it.

I have not seen a documentary on Bhutan but I have heard it was very interesting and it was very similar to this film. I think the basic idea is that Bhutan was a young country that had a bit of a run away with it. It had it's own culture and it did not share that culture with the Chinese. There was an atmosphere of isolation. Bhutan was a much more closed off culture than Tibet. And it did not have the Chinese government backing it. It was very much self supporting. The Chinese did not want to share their culture. They wanted to take Bhutan for themselves and they did that. They wanted to control Bhutan. When they realized that Bhutan was so independent and not in the control of the Chinese government they backed out. The film is a very interesting one and I would recommend this film to anyone who likes to know more about Bhutan. It shows the beauty and the history of Bhutan.

I have to say I was shocked at how bad this movie was. The director and writer, which should have been the biggest reason for not seeing this film, could not make a good movie. The first half of the movie was all about the director and his creative vision of Bhutan. While it was good to hear that he was going to have a budget, the film could have been so much better. It was like a musical with a budget. The only good part of the movie was the location and the cinematography. The filming was good, but it could have been so much better. The directing and editing were horrible. I felt like I was watching a video game and the editing was a mistake. In the end, the story was weak and the direction was horrible. The only thing that kept me from turning it off was the cinematography. The cinematography was good. The director could have made a great movie, but he was just not good at the directing.
