What an Amazing film, 28 June 2005
Author: spiralgirl from Australia

I can't believe the other comment on this movie! I couldn't disagree more!

This is one of my favourite films of all time!

This movie was so gritty and emotional and gave me a real understanding of the oppression suffered by the Tibetan people on a daily basis.No other movie, in my view, has captured this so well.

Windhorse focuses on the current situation and the lives of young Tibetans. This illustrates that the suffering in Tibet is ongoing. Many other movies about Tibet focus on the military occupation in the 1950's, and many people may thus hold the incorrect opinion that problems in Tibet are just part of history.

This is a very very powerful film.It is made even more powerful by the fact that some footage was filmed in secret in Tibet and smuggled out - a very risky venture!

I give this movie 10 out of 10!

Free Tibet!!
