Critic Reviews for The Cave of the Yellow Dog (Die Hohle des gelben Hundes)
The movie is very beautiful and also very slow, mostly due to the relatively primitive setting.
This is no heart-tugging family drama; rather it's a contemplative, compassionate portrait of a hardy people. Offered as a borderline documentary, it proceeds in long, uncluttered takes.
This unassuming drama of a nomad family brims with small marvels.
... a movie without commercial pizzazz but with plenty of art-film treasures.
Audience Reviews for The Cave of the Yellow Dog (Die Hohle des gelben Hundes)
Truly endearing, that's all I need to say.
Yes, this certainly is one beautifully done flilm. Yes, those children were unbelievably adorable. And yes, the scenery is magnificant. But...I almost fell asleep a few times. It is very. very slow moving and uneventful. The family seems so perfect, so free and untroubled in their Central Asian Eden that they seem like bit players in a propaganda piece with very little message. All of which is not to say it's a lousy movie. Just don't expect much grit or drama.
One summer in the life of a young Mongolian girl and her family. Director Byambasuren Davaa effectively accentuates the drama of daily routine, giving the entire film a National Geographic aura.
