Summer Pasture Reviews
It follows one family grouping, consisting of 2 brothers and 3 sisters living in 3 separate tents, focusing one husband and wife and their infant daughter.
Aside from the gorgeous scenery, SUMMER PASTURE offers excellent characterization, and the husband and wife are brought to life as fully-realized characters. One the one hand they're leading a life few Americans (even thee livestock farmers) could imagine: picking up yak manure by hand, spreading it, drying it in the sun, and burning it (a labor that begins and closes the film, one of several demanding tasks). On the other hand they're using Johnson's Baby Wipes, contemplating death and bad health, and facing the seasons. Recommended!
