  1. They are naturals at acting, not because they're good at lying but because they can't be phony.
  2. This sensuous, exotic film is more like an issue of "National Geographic" come to life, rich with cultural detail and insight.

    Himalaya does for yak caravans what "Red River" did for cattle drives: it sees them as the stuff of epic conquest.
  4. It's human drama, high and mighty.
  5. Complexity and personality among key figures keeps Himalaya involving throughout its grueling journey and lifts the film above the merely ethnographic.

    Himalaya doesn't need a traditional story line to transport the viewer into another, fascinating world.

    The cast is largely nonprofessional, and the story has the simplicity of myth.
