Great immigration story!
This is a type of movie we should see more often. Not an expensive one, but one with a good story.
In short, this is the story of a young teacher in Bhutan, who wants to immigrate to Australia and be a singer. Meanwhile he have contract with the Bhutan government to be a teacher for one more year and he must serve one more year, but is sent to the distant highland village of Lunana for this last year. He is the capital city kid, they are the highlanders. In the end he fulfills his dream and lands in Australia only to discover immigration is not what people dream it is.
Basically we see a cultural clash of the urban vs the highland culture, the forgotten old ways of living, the generational differences and what a family is about.
Generally everything is really well done. Very good music, sound and amazingly beautiful highland landscapes.
I am an immigrant myself, so i can relate to the story in many ways. Never before seen any movie from Bhutan, but loved this one.
Highly recommend this title.
