The Story of the Weeping Camel

Mongolia, Germany 2006

Details IMDB

Seen 12 April 2014

Ratings from other sources
IMDB 7.5/10

When a Mongolian nomadic family's newest camel colt is rejected by its mother, a musician is needed for a ritual to change her mind

My ratings 8.0/10

My impressions:

A mother rejects her new born
A traumatic experience definitely for both
Mother and child

It was a difficult birth
That might account for the detached feelings
Towards your own flesh and blood
Despite the crying for recognition
From the baby

How long can the baby endure
He is helpless without the mother's care
In the harsh reality of the environment

Others try to persuade
But to no avail
Until the plaintive sounds of the music
And the voice of another mother

Soothes and cajoles
