  1. The first feature-length movie from Bhutan tells its lighthearted story through smart performances, appealing images, and unfailing good humor.
  2. 90
    The lovability quotient is as high as the altitude.
  3. 80
    This sweet little movie is a mild comedy, a much calmer cousin to "Sister Act," with men in robes rather than women in habits.
  4. The glimpses of religious life bumping into secular passion are touching and warmly comic.

    Charming, slyly comic and far from conventionally religious.
  6. 67
    While never dull, The Cup is a leisurely, quiet film, rife with staid, sometimes ponderous moments reflecting the seriousness of their situation in exile.
  7. Little more than a plodding celebration of global television trumping everything in its midst.
