Die Höhle des Gelben Hundes plot

The young nomad girl Nansal lives with her parents and smaller sister and brother on the open plains somewhere in Mongolia. Somewhere in an open field in Mongolia she finds a small dog and she names the black and white spotted animal Zocher (Spot). Both become best friends, much to her father's wishes. Wolves also live on the plains that attack the herds of sheep and it is quite possible that Zocher has wolf blood in him.

Few resources, great effect. That is Cave of the Yellow Dog, a film with a simple premise, little audiovisual fuss (hardly any music, etc.) and everything largely shot in one location. The fascinating thing about the film is not necessarily in the story, but mainly in the visual, the film is very pleasant to watch. With the atmosphere probably the biggest plus. Those beautiful images, which radiate peace and tranquility, are finger licking good. Especially the scenes with the old woman and the storm. And besides that, the little protagonist was extremely touching.

3.5 stars.

After the "weeping camel" this Lassie story is disappointing, no more than a poor substitute.

And what a toddler plot.

Just like director Byambasuren Davaa's debut, The Story Of The Weeping Camel, an ingenious mixture of documentary and feature film, in which a Mongolian family actually plays themselves, against the background of a minimal added story. Also this time the formula works properly; the life of the nomads somewhere on the open plains in Mongolia remains fascinating to watch and the vicissitudes surrounding the family are attractively portrayed.
