"Cave of the Yellow Dog" - 7/10
"Story of the Weeping Camel" - 8/10
Two PG rated German productions for National Geographic filmed in Mongolia (subtitled). While the plot and acting were not strong (actual local inhabitants and famlies), I was really interested in the portrayal of local life, activities, and animals for these subsistence herding famlies. Living in yurts, following their herds between grazing areas these tight famlies and clans have been largely forgotten by time. "Weeping Camel's" resolution of a new mother camels failure to accept her colt is pretty amazing. Beautiful photography of glorious barren landscapes and good soundtracks compliment the action.
