Close to Eden (Urga) (Territory of Love) Reviews
A lovely film to watch on a date, assuming you and your partner have similar tastes. Some totally excellent jokes, beautiful people. Like Local Hero for scots, this is about the old ways in the modern world, and the unchanging nature of men and women. 4.75 stars - 5 for benefit of doubt.
I can't deny some "look away now" moments for queasy animal lovers...
I am rewatching this (thanks O) and even though I can't understand a word of dialogue on this DVD, it's spectacular. A perfect film to watch while preparing a meal for hogmanay.
Ein russischer LKW-Fahrer sitzt mitten in der Mongolei fest - eine Normadenfamilie nimmt ihn auf ... allein die akkordeonspielende Tochter ist ein Highlight.
Having said that, the movie is by no means bad. It is relaxing and pleasing to watch it even if it deverges towards the end. It has great acting, great music, cinematography, beautiful landscapes, great emotion expression and subtle yet fantastic character development.
