Audience Reviews for The Buddha: The Story Of Siddhartha
A wonderful re-telling of the classical tale of the life of Buddha, that focuses on why his life and his teachings resonate, today, to any ordinary person. The interviews taken, from Dalai Lama himself, to artists, poets and monks, are a revelation. The simplicity of Buddha's concepts is striking, and whenever the meaning tends to be elusive, there is always a smart remark that will bring us back to the actual insight. Music, animation, narration, are all combined to support the vibrant content. Aesthetically the animated part maybe not the best of choices, but it at least it works! I recommend this movie not only to first-timers, but also any practitioner who needs to be reminded of the Dharma.
Good documentary of a very great and compassionate man. Great interviews, especially those with the Dalai Lama. For some I feel it could be very eye-opening.
I must think that the story of the Buddha is going to be much more interesting than it actually is...this is the third documentary I've watched about the man (and the subsequent religion) and, once again, I'm underwhelmed. That having been said, this documentary is the most concise and informative of the three, and excepting the hackneyed animation, is also the least cheesy.
