    Pretty neat concept. Made me think of James Benning in a cable car. If you like his films, you will most definitely like this one. Bring your coffee!!!

    Directed by two people: one, not listed here on Metacritic (not surprised), has shown great dedication to Nepal over the years. The other, is ready to pick up his award.

    Observational with a vengeance, more an art piece than a conventional motion picture, Manakamana is simple in conception, but the reactions it evokes in viewers will be complex and multifaceted.

    Despite our narrow angle on Nepal, Manakamana peers into lives at close range.

    A haunting experience, one that requires patience (and then some) but that offers spiritual, philosophical, and aesthetic rewards beyond the immediate power of words to describe.
