An absolutely beautiful film

Incredible wild life photography. The photographers go to extreme lengths to capture these images. You also get a good insight into the lives the people of Tibet. This film is very suitable for adults and children. Anyone who loves nature animals will be very happy they saw this film. I very much hope that it comes out on DVD and or blue ray. This is a much needed mini vacation from our current world condition. You understand why we should protect the natural world.

The reason why whe should learn to readapt/reconnect with the/our world

This truly magnificent testimony of some of the most intimate aspects of wildlife is surely a wonderful gift for human audiences all over the globe.

It shares with us a way on its own to be touched and mesmerised by the absolute beauty, the strength and the wisdom of Nature.

This 1 hour 30 minutes audiovisual journey through the valley of lights and shadows in Tibet's Himalaya Chain isn't just unforgettable. Somehow, it is much much more: All these encounters/discoveries are still the irrefutable proof how badly our World needs us to respect it in every inch of its purest designs to be able to exist as a whole...They "still" are... and isn't this respect the most obvious (only?) way for us humans to conceivably claim a legetimate right for our future life on Earth? In peace, harmony and respect with the whole World and every kind of natural environment? I believe it is!

Enjoy this haunting ride at the far end of the World: Your own deep human nature will be grateful! Thank you Vincent, Marie and Sylvain.

Simply amazing

The photography is outstanding and the reflections wise and poetic. I saw it in a documentary festival in Oslo and hope to be able to show it to my children soon. A movie to be seen by all.

8 / 10

Animals are beautiful

The adaptation of Sylvain Tesson's book is an ode for beauty and patience. Are we going to see her or not then our snow leopard? Suspense and no spoil. (But I assure you panther or not the animals are there and it is magnificent). 8/10.

Not just a documentary, but an experience.

One of the most beautiful films about our planet I've ever seen. The Velvet Queen is perfect mix between wildlife and human experience.

Is you have the chance to see this masterpiece in a movie theatre please don't miss it.
