A lengthy, demanding but worthwhile film ... admirably clear-headed about the deep splits within the Tibetan opposition.
You needn't disagree with the film's cause to feel oppressed by its propagandistic approach - not to mention Philip Glass's relentlessly mournful score.
A valuable though flawed documentary about the international movement to free Tibet from Chinese rule ...
An extremely powerful documentary about Tibet's struggle for emancipation from China that's passionate in its plea and highly informative, although slightly bloated.
Much of what people say here is maddeningly phased out in favour of oozingly self-righteous music by Philip Glass, precisely what Tibet does not need: an arty score.
The staggering landscapes of this mountainous land are captured beautifully as director Dirk Simon picks apart contradictions within Tibetan society. Philip Glass, Thom Yorke and Damien Rice provide terrific musical accompaniment.
