In our increasingly mechanized and automated world that frowns on superstition and mysticism, this story shows how vitally relevant our disappearing ancient wisdom and traditional beliefs still are. In particular, the film focuses on the age-old Himalayan celebration of feminine energy as the most supreme aspect of being. Crucial to our own volatile era, this energy is personified in tantric Buddhism by dakinis who may appear as living beings with almost supernatural powers to give or take away our life force and provide direction, guidance or ruin to our lives.
“At least for the uninitiated, the drift of the filmmaking seemed to fall short of the transcendence envisioned by its story.”Nicolas Rapold: The New York Times
