Movie Info

Filmed over twenty years by acclaimed documentarian Jennifer Fox, My Reincarnation chronicles the epic story of the high Tibetan Buddhist Master, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, and his western-born son, Yeshi. The film follows Namkhai Norbu's rise to greatness as a Buddhist teacher in the West, while his son, Yeshi, recognized at birth as the reincarnation of a famous spiritual master, breaks away from his father's tradition to embrace the modern world. Can the father convince his son to keep the family's threatened spiritual legacy alive? Never before has a high Tibetan Master allowed such complete access to his private life and it is doubtful that another ever will. -- (C) Long Shot Factory

The story and settings hold interest throughout, but at times the very lack of emotional connection that Yeshi laments in his father seems to hinder the film.

"My Reincarnation" is a fascinating, if inexpertly told, yarn.

December 23, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Buddhism teaches patience, and you're going to need it if you attempt to sit through the conciliatory bromides of the slow documentary "My Reincarnation."

October 28, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Languid and contemplative, the film is typical of the intimate, paired-down aspect of Fox's style, a documentary in which lives accumulate in small moments.

October 27, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

"My Reincarnation" makes a pretty strong case: when the family business is enlightenment, listen to your dad.

October 27, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's fascinating to watch Yeshi grow from a skeptical teenager into a spiritual leader -- a transformation that still doesn't bring him any closer to his father.
