I, for one, knew nothing about Buddhism going into this film and was eager to find out about the principles of the religion. After two hours of grueling ceremonies and rituals, I knew barely anything more than I did before.
It's an impressionistic experience rather than a linear one, and the process of surrendering to the images and rhythms of lives lived in simultaneous harmony with the physical and the spiritual is greatly helped by the chants.
A challenge, so dense is it in the philosphical arcana of Tibetan Buddhism. But the images are amazing and intimate, particularly those involving the Dalai Lama as he greets his flock with ease and good humour.
