LUNANA: A YAK IN THE CLASSROOM (Released to Theaters Japan 2020)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom—good storyline—shows well on screen and tells a solid story. The movie almost seems like a documentary because of the type of camera used to record classroom events and the daily lives of people living in this small village located in one of the most remote locations in the world. The scenery is quite spectacular. The movie has got a sentimental feel that will satisfy and emphasizes the human spirit and the cooperation needed to ensure educational goals. The conclusion is a little unexpected but is realistic. Made in Bhutan, the film has terrific English subtitles
