The Cup


  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


The first ever commercial release for a film made in Bhutan and in the Tibetan language. It is 1998 and World Cup fever has reached the Indian Himalayas. THE CUP is a delightful comedy about the lighter side of living in a Tibetan Monastery. A touching story that tackles the issues of winning and losing, life in exile and the impact of the modern on the traditional, and…the eternal question: where DO you find a TV to watch the big game?
