[Deepak] Rauniyar gets the most out of the actors, a mix of pros and amateurs, and cinematographer Mark Ellam generates exhilarating images of this vertiginous corner of the world.
... speaks to [director Deepak] Rauniyar's narrative gifts regarding matters of his homeland.
Rauniyar and co-screenwriter David Barker deftly show how recent Nepalese history affects its most isolated citizens, and cinematographer Mark O'Fearghail's unobtrusive naturalism captures the region's punishing poverty and exquisite beauty.
The filmmaking isn't flashy and the exchanges can be on the nose, but "White Sun" ... captures a place that isn't seen much in movies.
The sky-high Himalayas and the aftermath of civil war cast equally dark shadows in White Sun (Seto Surya), an impressively accomplished second feature by Nepalese writer-director Deepak Rauniyar.
All the performances are tops, right down to the bit parts.
White Sun is a beautifully shot film, with lush widescreen compositions that suggest the work of Terrence Malick.
Deepak Rauniyar may be more skilled dramatist than inspired image-maker, but his admirably balanced and humane social and political perspective is bracing nevertheless.
Rauniyar handles the socio-political complexities of life post-conflict with a lightness of touch and flashes of absurdist humour.
