Travellers and Magicians back to product details

written by DNelson6 September 21, 2011 - 2:26 PM PDT
As I get older, I am better able to enter into the slow pace of a well told story. The photography in this movie was captivating as was the social commentary embedded in the account of a man traveling to a nearby town to get a visa so he can move to America (dreamland). The story is intertwined with the story told to the man and his accumulated company of travelers by a monk. In each story, events unfold that cause a change of heart, in one direction and in the other. The juxtaposition of the stories and the inner conflicts of the characters make this an enjoyable story to which most anyone could relate.

Stories within stories, lovely scenery and quiet ironies abound in TRAVELLERS AND MAGICIANS, another movie from the Bhutan filmmaker Khyentse Norbu who brought us "The Cup" a few years back. This one is even a bit better, but not for anyone in a hurry. Paced slowly--and surely--it pays off over time.
