The director, Davaagiin Byambasüren, followed this with the somewhat similar and also very good The Cave of the Yellow Dog. The actors are amateurs essentially playing themselves.

Beautiful story, beautiful scenery. The story develops slowly, but with the grandeur and the charm of the family it is not at all a heavy burden.

The six-year-old (approximately) boy (Ugna) steals the show with his antics and charm. The photographers apparently fell in love with him too, as he's in many scenes, and often the story is told from his perspective.
