Highly inspiring invitation to discover nature
18 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The film is a subtle gem -it invites you to discover nature and human nature with poetic images of ancient healing system known as AYURVEDA.

I was curious when the film was running in cinema halls for more then a year in Spain; Then I could not hold back when I learnt that AYURVEDA completed record-breaking 20 month long continuous run in one cinema hall in Paris and while write this in September 2006 it still continues to play there...

Thus when I had opportunity in Canada I rushed to see AYURVEDA.

The film is very simple road movie, has no narration and shows straight forward encounter with healers/doctors/people across India, Greece & USA.

The music, original score by Cyril Morin, is soothing and relaxing.

The film is an eye-opener to health in general but also makes you think about the health of earth, water, fire, air... and the universe. Its all linked. What you pollute outside manifests inside your body and mind.

Do not miss this film and try and see it in Cinema hall if you can -it has a meditative quality about it.

Congratulation to the team behind AYURVEDA: ART OF BEING. We NEED more movies like that to make a world better place to live and let live.
