Storyline

Un Buda follows two brothers orphaned as children when their parents were taken by the military during the "Dirty Wars" of the 1970s in Argentina. Tomas (Agustin Markert) is now a drifting and withdrawn young man who experiments with ascetic practices and has an instinctive compassion for others. His older brother Rafael, played by Rafecas, is a university philosophy professor, detached and alone. Their struggles with each other and the world around them in Buenos Aires take a dramatic turn when they find themselves at a rural Zen center. Written by @guyatree

The best movie!
17 August 2005 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

After coming and going things are becoming clear in my life and in that context is when the film UN BUDA emerges. For those that are in permanent search for something it makes us remember how fragile and how wonderful the path is. On the other hand I am a photographer , and this profession allows me to see things in a different way. Without making comments that might increment the ego, I congratulate the director for transforming the universe into little things and vice versa. Thank you very much for this movie. Diego this film is wonderful. I haven't seeing such a great Argentinian movie in a long time. Really it is a pleasure. I cannot stop thinking about it.
