Rated 3 / 5 stars

While it was nice visually, and riveting when the scary music kicks in, there was no emotional factor.
I felt sadder when the Yak died as opposed to the other characters.
Perhaps create a connection by showing character development and the interactions between characters. The sister has difficulty building a kite, and the brother helps. The mother is sad about not being able to feed her family and the brother disappears to come back with food he slaved to catch.
Also, the way they overcame the monster had no impact at all. It was a very convenient end. For the triumphant ending, wits and planning could be used. For the heart-drop impact, use sacrifice as a way to overcome the monster just like the Yak (the Yak was the most emotional loss for me), maybe the mother could toss herself over a cliff with the monster to kill it, or the brother has to choose between saving his mother or sister.
Very pretty, but needs more feeling for a film as ethereal as this.

Light and shadow combined with the music score makes this a mini masterpiece.
