The intricacy of human relations is the subject of Tibetan author executive Sonthar Gyal’s superbly downplayed second film, River (Gtsngbo). A little young lady of 3 or 4 battles with her trepidation of losing her folks’ affection when her mom gets pregnant and weans her. In the meantime, her adamant oaf of a father wages a noiseless war against his own particular father for what he considers an unpardonable slip. Tibet’s high, forlorn mountains loan the story a hurting realness, while the humorously expressive face of little Yangchen Lhamo (played by Yangchan Lhamu) keeps the mind-set light and delicate.
Despite the fact that it bowed in Berlin’s Generation K-Plus, this little gem is maybe excessively unobtrusive for youthful gatherings of people, making it impossible to completely get it.
