The world "Samsara" gives us is strange and beautiful, and in places disturbing, but it also seems manageable, even in its vastness, and perhaps too easily consumed through beautiful images.

An enthralling non-narrative documentary with images from five continents that becomes a guided meditation on the wheel of life and death; one of the best films of 2012 that you will treasure all your life.
