YesAsia Editorial Description

Tibetan filmmaker Pema Tseden (Old Dog) offers a black-and-white parable about the conflict between traditional and modern values and lifestyles in contemporary Tibet. Famed comedian Shide Nyima plays the eponymous shepherd who lives a lonely but peaceful life with his flock in the mountains. After being told to get an ID by the police chief, Tharlo heads to town to take his ID photo. He goes to a barbershop to freshen up, and becomes smitten with young hairdresser Yangtso (singer Yang Xiucuo), a modern girl different from anyone he had met before. After a memorable day with Yangtso, Tharlo returns to his home, but the increasingly restless shepherd no longer feels content with life alone in the mountains. Tharlo was selected for the Horizons section of the 72nd Venice Film Festival, and won Best Adapted Screenplay at the 52nd Golden Horse Awards.

Product Information

High in the desolate, windswept mountains of Tibet lives a shepherd named Tharlo. He tends his sheep and rides his motorcycle, passing his days in familiar routines far from the city lights. But when Tharlo travels to the city for an ID card photo and meets Yangtso, a modern young hairdresser, his traditional life will forever change.

Leading Tibetan anuteur Pema Tseden (The Serach, Old Dog) first wrote Tharlo’s story as a novella. In adapting his spare and poignant short story for the screen, Tseden is at the height of his directorial powers, using just 84 meticulously composed shots to channel Tharlo’s world into gorgeous vistas of black-and-white.

Popular actor Shide Nyima makes his dramatic debut with a defining performance as the monastic title character, a role that Tseden wrote with him in mind; he is beautifully matched by Yangshik Tso as the object of Tharlo’s uneasy desire. An award-winning, film festival and critical favorite, Tharlo brings its characters and their world to edgy, explosive life.
