Story of the Weeping Camel, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Captivating docudrama set against spectacular expanses of the Gobi Desert about a family of nomadic Mongolian herders who summon a musician from a far-off village to perform an ancient ritual, which they hope will coax a mother camel into nursing the newborn calf which she rejected at birth. Though it doesn't sound like much of a plot, directors Byambasuren Davaa and Luigi Falorni, using a cast of all nonprofessional actors, have crafted a tender tale -- beautiful both cinematically and narratively -- whose message of family bonds, the importance of tradition and the centrality of love for survival is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. Subtitles. Thematic content. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
