Overall yet another excellent documentary from Herzog. The first half is outstanding showing the extraordinary ordeals of the pilgrims on the journeys to Bhod Gaya and Mt. Kailash; Herzog is respectfully observing but mostly leaves the images for the viewer. The second part shot in Austria I found less compelling and drifted into areas of politicking which changed the tone of the film.
