 PRESS REVIEWS 

"Impressively polished by first-feature standards, Amarsaikhan's exploration of (step)fatherhood in Harvest Moon is undeniably simple but achingly tender, which might well prove to be a winning combination."

-- Amarsanaa Battulga, ScreenAnarchy

 

"In Harvest Moon, Baljinnyam captures the wistful, melancholic days of autumn through the rolling fields and the bittersweet, temporary nature of the friendship between Tulgaa and Tuntuulei."

-- Margeaux Sippell, MovieMaker
