ihor's rating of the film Manakamana

A profound observation, literally, exploring mundane human interaction as well as the evolution of Nepalese society captured inside a single cable car. Despite the insulation an amazing freedom seems to exists as natural, diverse and genuine human interactions are displayed. A mostly traditional society seems to firmly exist, but cracks of change are emerging in young and old. Unexpectedly excellent.
