Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
One of your more leisurely paced documentaries, Die Salzmanner Von Tibet is not going to please those who demand a great deal of action and adventure. But for those who can acclimate themselves to the steady, unhurried nature of the film, Salzmanner offers a number of rewards. The greatest of these, and one which can be appreciated even by those for whom the pacing is frustrating, is the stunning cinematography of Pio Corradi. Corradi captures images that contain great beauty in their simplicity, and there's an incredible richness in the colors that he presents on the screen. Indeed, the importance of Die Salzmanner Von Tibet's cinematography to the telling of its story cannot be overstated. This is not to discredit director Ulrike Koch, who sensitively and unobtrusively tells the story of the nomads, and whose decision to forego narration is a wise one. Koch immerses the viewer in the experiences of her subjects and provides a rare glimpse into a lifestyle that is likely to be totally new to most. Whether that immersion is worth the time is a decision that will vary from viewer to viewer, but Koch deserves credit for her dedication and clear vision.
