Critic Reviews for Tharlo
Shooting in pristine black and white, writer-director Pema Tseden favors extended long shots and boldly composed frames, the space rigidly sectioned by posts, wires, mirrors, windows, and the like.
The bottom drops out of the movie, leaving its interest almost exclusively ethnographic.
The lovely, loving craft extends to gentle, haunting sound design: these worlds are both concrete and dreamy in Tseden's eye, geometrically exquisite yet filled with implications of wandering and wonder.
A rich allegory for a nation torn between past and future.
As a bit of anthropology offering a glimpse into Tibetan life today, it's perfectly serviceable.
