Storyline

Leo, dopo un incidente stradale, è ricoverato in ambulatorio e racconta al professore Bennet, suo medico curante, la storia e le gesta del monaco tibetano Milarepa, con il quale si identifica. La leggenda è narrata in tre capitoli ben distinti: la magia nera, ovvero le pratiche delle fattucchiere ; la magia bianca, ovvero il raggiungimento della perfezione e della saggezza e la trasfigurazione, ovvero il distacco da ogni realtà materiale attraverso la resurrezione. Film difficile, ma di forte impatto mistico, per l'epoca. Written by rosebud6

touching story of Milarepa made anew
1 April 2005 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Tibetan yogi Milarepa is one of the main teachers of Buddhism. His autobiography is filmed here parallel with a story of a youth of our days, both seeking answers to same questions. They have masters whose decisions they don't fully catch, and there are women whose roles are ambiguous. Master and disciple depend in each other, in fierce search for truth; only belief and honor count. Cavani made an extraordinary movie which has not lost any of its charm within years. It is a meditation of man's destiny and also a narrative of the parallel but non- tangential lives of man and woman. This film can be read as a visual philosophical tract and an homage to Milarepa. Aside of that, the film is very beautiful visually and the great actors fully contribute to the ideas of both Milarepa and Cavani.
