This up-close and personal look at the lives of a Tibetan yak-farming family is filled with stunning scenery, though the fly-on-the-wall observation of their day-to-day routine tends to grate. (Apparently, there are only so many ways you can film a person drying dung for kindling.) Nonetheless, the subjects---a husband and wife struggling to make ends meet, mostly for the well-being of their infant daughter---are eminently engaging. And the sense that theirs is a vanishing way of life lends the doc an often-profound sense of melancholy.
