What von Stürler's documentary lacks in human beings it more than makes up for in snow-covered sheep.

Riveting and transfixing. Most likely the closest you'll ever come to meeting a shepherd and grasping what it's like to be one.

What little we learn of Pascal, who has worked in Switzerland as a shepherd for more than 30 years, and Carole, who is a former dietitian, fits in a scene or two, but their practical journey yields a certain contemplative equanimity.

An exhilarating vérité work by first-timer Manuel von Stürler, the documentary follows this seasonal migration, or transhumance, with a sense of quiet awe and intimacy, capturing the feel of cold rain, deep snow and the comforting heat of a campfire.
