    ‘The Calling’ is one of the most beautiful little films I’ve ever seen: a masterpiece that conveys more its stated subject matter. I’m just an ordinary film-goer who didn’t expect to be so blown away.

    I found this work one of the most moving experiences I have encountered. I felt as if I was as one with the people depicted. I so hope that this amazing language and the way of life won’t be lost in a society that tries to make us all as one. Let’s enjoy our differences and preserve them.
