"Eagle Flute," a musical film said to be based on
Tibetan legends had won the "Particularly
Recommended Movie" award at the fourth Monaco
Film Festival which concluded May 17, reported
China’s official Xinhua news agency May 21.

Shot on Tibetan-inhabited areas at an altitude of
5,000 m above sea level in Sichuan Province, the
film tells a love story in multiple music forms
such as original Tibetan folk and pop music.

The film "will lead the western audience into
this snow-covered, mystic plateau and see the
unity of different religions and cultures in face
of human nature," a producer of the film was quoted as saying.
