Filmed in Hulun Buir Aimag, Inner Mongolia, China.

One of the most beautifully photographed films I've ever seen in a fantastic landscape.

Based on the friendship between a Russian truck driver and a Mongolian shepherd across totally different lives. Extracts on youtube starting at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qm4XebWE_3c but a subtitled version is essential. Excellent theme music http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_U_DOuAWz4g . Lovely slightly absurd humour - the family get their first television, but grandma is more fascinated by popping her first bubblewrap:

The daughter is a brilliant squeeze-box player and is reading his tattoo of the music

(2 green military jeeps parked together; there's also a red car - possibly FSO Polonez - and a white saloon - Hongki? - parked behind the horses but impossible to get proper unobstructed views)

(a 124-based Lada or whatever local name)

Everything else is horses, carts, and pedal bikes. Millions of them.
