WFC Nepal: Himalaya – l’enfance d’un chef

This is a very pretty film, but it’s kitch. And I see now that the director is French, which makes sense, because it’s in the tradition of Jean Auel: So much melodrama. In every scene where the wide-eyed perfectly tousled-haired children appear I can’t help imagining a crack squad of French hairdressers standing just outside the frame with hairbrushes and cans of Elnett at the ready.

But it sure is pretty. And I like the actors.

Himalaya. Eric Valli. 1999. Nepal.
